Polls Open at 6:45 a.m. for Tuesday’s Presidential Primary 

March 4, 2024

Bedford plays its part in the Super Tuesday series of presidential primary elections on Tuesday when the polls at John Glenn Middle School open at 6:45 a.m. Voting will continue until 8 p.m.

All voters, including those unenrolled, are eligible to participate in the open primary with specific party ballots provided by the precinct worker on request.

Ashley Large in the town clerk’s office said that as of 9 a.m. on Monday, 1,695 early ballots had been received with more expected. That total is more than 16 percent of the town’s 10,443 registered voters.

Tuesday is the first of two election events within a five-day window. The town’s annual election is always on the second Saturday in March.

Ron Scaltreto, Director of the Facilities Department, said that after he checks with the town clerk’s office “to make sure it’s set up the way they want,” workers will arrange the middle school gymnasium with voting booths along with tables and chairs beginning Monday. Night custodians will continue the process, he said.

The room will be dismantled after the polls close and reset Friday for the Town Election. Scaltreto said that the voting machines are locked up between elections, as required by law.

Large noted that the superintendent of schools is asking educators and other middle school employees to leave their vehicles on the east side of the parking area so voters can use spaces closest to the building.
