Voters head to the polls Tuesday, October 6 in Petersburg and will be deciding one ballot measure and one contested race for harbor board. As of 11:30 a.m., 95 people had voted at the polls in the community gym activity room. Another 92 borough residents had voted absentee by yesterday’s deadline. Add those together and the turnout for this election so far is 187 people. That’s just over seven percent of the 2,631 registered voters in the Petersburg borough. The polls are open until 8 p.m. at the community gym activity room, a different location past years. more
