Can Residents vote in the local Town Board election? The Town Board doesn't seem to know, they keep referring me to someone else.
I hear it both ways when I ask that question to John Q.and even the Election and boundaries Commission circles around when I try to get a straight answer.
For sure the rules are different for national elections but for local I highly suspect legal residents can vote, but i can't get that confirmed anywhere.they keep saying ask JR.( I think he might be biased so I didn't bother.
