City of Concord residents, please note the following polling location changes for the Nov. 3, 2020 Election:

-Ward 9 residents will be voting at the City Wide Community Center, 14 Canterbury Road, again during the Nov. 3 election.

WHY WERE THE POLLING LOCATIONS CHANGED?
Ward Nine residents voted at the City Wide Community Center, 14 Canterbury Road for the September 8 State Primary Election. Prior to the September 8 Election, Ward Nine residents voted at Havenwood Heritage Heights, a nursing home here in Concord. This polling location change, for the September and November Elections, was made to ensure the safety of Havenwood residents as well as the safety of Ward 9 residents and Ward officials working at the polls on Election Day. Ward Nine residents provided positive feedback about this change.

Ward Two residents will vote at the Barn at Bull Meadow, 63 Bog Road in Concord. This change will, like other polling location changes, ensure the safety of residents voting on Election Day as well as Ward officials working at the polls on Election Day. Additional polling location space and parking are welcome changes for Ward Two residents within the community. We are excited about this change and are grateful that the owners of the Barn at Bull Meadow offered their space. We sincerely thank the West Congregational Church for their historic hospitality.

Ward Seven residents will vote at the Abbot-Downing Elementary School, 152 South Street, on November 3. Historically, Ward Seven residents have voted at the West Street Ward House in Concord. Similar to Ward Two, additional polling location space and parking will be welcome changes for Ward Seven residents.

All of the above changes have been made to ensure that we provide ample space in preparation for an anticipated large turnout for the upcoming election, while addressing social distancing due to the current coronavirus pandemic. A mailing will be going out to Ward residents to ensure they are aware of their new voting location.
