Don't Forget: Vote Saturday in Woodbridge's Fire District Elections

You have a say on commissioners and the fire district budgets you pay for in your property tax bill. So go vote!


You might have forgotten, but this Saturday, the fire districts in Woodbridge are having their annual elections. The hours to vote are 2 pm to 9 pm.

Here, you'll get to vote on fire commissioners, the men who oversee the firehouse. You'll also get to vote on your local fire district budget, which is part of your property tax bill. 

These elections are important, but they historically have the lowest turnout of any municipal elections in town.

Look on your tax bill to find out what fire district you're in. The elections are usually held at the fire houses in your district (but see below for an exception for Sewaren.)
