Boiler Problem Forces Change In Voting Location For Some Districts


Township clerk Mary Anne McCarthy, right, said that a problem with the boiler in the Consolata Missionaries building has forced a change in some polling places.

A problem with the boiler at Consolata Missionaries, Route 27, has forced a change in the polling place for some districts for the Nov. 4 election.

Those voters living in Districts 30 to 34 will now vote at Franklin Park School, 30 Eden St.

In a memo to the Township Council, township clerk Anne Marie McCarthy wrote that she was informed on Oct. 22 that the missionaries’ building boiler broke down, and would probably not be fixed until after the election.

McCarthy wrote that discussions with the Board of Education’s interim business administrator and the Somerset County Board of Elections resulted in the decision to use Franklin Park School as an alternative polling place.

“There is an annex with a gym and a separate entrance that will be utilized as the polling location,” McCarthy wrote. “There will be no disruption to the school children on that day.”

Notices will be sent to all registered voters in those districts, as well as posted on the township Web site and television channel, she wrote. Signs will also be posted at both sites on election day.
