WELLS — The town scrambled Oct. 27 to inform residents of the correct polling hours for the Nov. 3 vote, after two Poland Spring mailers gave the wrong time.
Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Wells High School, according to town officials.
Poland Spring/NESTLE are advocating that the town pass and ordinance that would enact regulations on large scale water withdrawal.
The Poland Spring mailer advocated that residents pass an ordinance that would enact regulations on large-scale water extraction operations.
It stated the polls opened earlier and closed earlier than the correct time frame.
Opponents of the ordinance claim, if enacted, the change would open the town to large-scale water withdrawal operations like that of Poland Spring.
Poland Spring/NESTLE is, of course, saying it was an honest mistake.
