NORTH YARMOUTH — The polls at Wescustogo Hall on Walnut Hill Road will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, despite published warrant documents that said the polls would open an hour later.

Town officials decided to open the polls earlier to accommodate more voters on a wide variety of ballot issues, including the school budget, town office elections and the gubernatorial primaries.

Voters who arrive between 7 and 8 a.m. will receive all published ballots, according to Town Clerk Debbie Allen Grover.

To nominate and elect a moderator for Saturday’s town meeting, voters must be at the polls at 8 a.m. for a brief hand count, said Marnie Diffin, administrative assistant to the Board of Selectmen.

Chris Vaniotis has been the moderator for several years.

The town meeting will be held at Wescustogo Hall starting at 9 a.m.
