MONROE, CT — Margaret J. Villani, the town’s Republican registrar of voters, reminds voters participating in Tuesday’s municipal election to wear a mask and bring identification when they go to the polls.

“We recognize vaccinated and unvaccinated, but the governor’s executive order requiring masks in schools is still in effect,” Villani said of measures in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

She said all of the polls workers will wear face coverings, throughout the day, and some may also choose to wear gloves.

All four polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday. The polls are:

  • District 1: Fawn Hollow Elementary School, 345 Fan Hill Road
  • District 2: Stepney Elementary School, 180 Old Newtown Road
  • District 3: Monroe Elementary School, 375 Monroe Turnpike
  • District 4: Masuk High School, 1014 Monroe Turnpike
