Thanks to all of you (800) who responded to our online survey on which G.A.B. extended operating hours before, during and after elections would best meet your needs. We were pleasantly surprised by so many responses that indicated no additional or expanded hours were needed, outside of G.A.B.’s normal hours of operation of 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A majority of the responses indicated that a lot of expanded hours may not be needed for smaller elections (i.e. February and April), but that more hours would be needed for the September Partisan and the November General elections. A full analysis of the survey responses will soon be shared with you.

In accordance with your responses, I am pleased to announce our extended hours of operation in preparation for next Tuesday’s Spring Primary Election as follows:
