Salem NH votes today on a non binding vote that could affect the rest of NH. Voters will decide on whether or not they are in favor of a casino at Rockingham Park. However a binding vote is required before commencement of any operations.
Town Clerk Susan Wall said the town is preparing for an extra influx of voters this year because of the casino question.
“We have never given away so many sample ballots,” she said.”We have extra people working the polls and ordered extra polling booths this year.”
Wall said between 2,500 and 3,000 of the town’s approximately 24,000 registered voters turn out at Town Meeting each year. This year, she is expecting upward of 4,000 voters.
