Fire Elections to be Held Saturday
But attendance for these elections is usually low.
The four Bridgewater fire districts will be holding their annual elections Saturday, with voters choosing commissioners and deciding on requested budgets.
The polls will be open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, and residents are requested to vote only in their designated districts.
Attendance for the fire district elections is notoriously low. In 2012, no more than about 130 people voted in each district.
District one covers Martinsville, with the Martinsville Volunteer Fire Company, and voting will be held at the Martinsville Fire House on Washington Valley Road.
District two is for the Bradley Gardens section of town, and voting will be held in the firehouse bays of the Bradley Gardens Fire Company on Old York Road.
District three covers residents living in Country Hills, Green Knoll or North Branch, and voting will take place at the municipal building on Commons Way.
District four covers the Finderne section of town, and voting will be held at the Finderne Fire Department on East Main Street.
