The town has pushed up the annual election by three weeks.
The Select Board voted to change the date of election from May 6 to April 30, the same date as the special state Senate primary election. The change in date is allowed under state legislation that established the special primary.
Voting hours are also expanded from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Deerfield Town Hall.
The filing deadline for nomination papers with the Board of Registrars is today at 4 p.m. Nomination papers are available at the town clerk’s office.
