Election 2018: Is The Dracut Ballot Already Set? Could be

Mar 03, 2018 05:48AM ● Published by Bill Gilman

There is still more than two weeks for candidates to take out nomination papers and get their names on the May 3 ballot. However, the nomination process has slowed to a crawl ... and a slow crawl at that.
No new candidates have pulled papers in the last two weeks, leading to speculation that the ballot might already be set.
So far, there is a two-way race for one seat on the Board of Selectmen, a three-way race for two seats on the School Committee and a two-way race for one seat on the Housing Authority.
The remaining races are uncontested at the moment.
