Nearly $3 million in bonding is up for a vote in Redding next week. Absentee ballots are now available for the special referendum on $2.95 million for road work over three years. The August 26th referendum is from 6am to 8pm at Redding Elementary School. Since the referendum is a week away, absentee ballots cannot be mailed. Voters must pick up an application for an absentee ballot in the Redding Town Clerk’s office or complete an application downloaded from the town's website and brought to the Clerk's office. Completed absentee ballots may be either hand-delivered or mailed to the Town Clerk’s Office by 5:30pm on the day of the referendum.
