WESTMINSTER — The City Council passed the final piece of legislation Monday necessary to empower the mayor to appoint additional election judges to thecity's sole polling location.
The ordinance, passed unanimously at Monday's council meeting, allows Mayor W. Benjamin Brown to add three judges for duty during the May 13 city elections at the Volunteer Fire Company on Main Street. That would bring the total number of judges at the polling place to six.
Earlier this month, the council had passed a required City Charter amendment on the matter.
