Supervisors of The Checklist
The Supervisors of the Checklist are elected ofﬁcials who are responsible for maintaining the Town’s registered voter list and are involved in all Federal, State and Local elections. Supervisors meet in session prior to and at elections to register voters and make corrections to the Checklist. Each Supervisor is elected for a term of 6 years.
Corrections or changes to the Checklist can be made with the Supervisors when they are in session or with the Town Clerk, the Deputy or the Assistant during their regular hours. Please note that any changes are not reﬂected on the Checklist until they are approved and ﬁnalized at the next Supervisor session, all of which are open to the public.
The current checklist is posted outside the Town Clerk’s Ofﬁce for public viewing. It may not be removed, except by the Supervisors, for any reason.
Copies of the “Public Checklist” are available from the Town Clerk’s Ofﬁce at a cost of $25.00 per copy.
