The Lee Public Safety Complex was hopping today, as voters turn out to weigh in on school and town leaders and issues. In addition to school board, Lee voters have a contested selectman's race and ballot questions on expanded Lee Speedway operations, a grass field in Little River Park and a new police cruiser. Reports from Durham indicate a lower turnout than last year, with a less contentious school board race and no library initiative on the ballot.
It was a foggy morning at the polls, with the various sign-holders in opposing camps getting along nicely. Selectman candidates Brackett and Dennis were there, and candidate and current school board member Newkirk stopped by for a while. Candidate spouse Amy Piedmont came out for a spell as well. Here are some pictures.

Here's my completed school district ballot for your perusal.
Well I'm headed back there. Vote for Rotner, Newkirk & Bugbee!
