DANVERS — With races for Board of Selectmen, School Committee and Library Trustees to decide, Danvers voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, May 2.
All eight precincts vote in the Vye Gym at Danvers High School on 60 Cabot Road. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
Town Clerk Joseph Collins said the high school will be in session during the election. For those concerned about parking and traffic, Collins noted there will be fewer students on campus because seniors who are doing internships elsewhere.
Collins said he is not expecting a large turnout.
"I'd like to hope between 15 to 20 percent," he said when asked to predict the turnout, "but if I get 10 percent, I'll be lucky."
Collins said signs will direct voters to the gym, which is on the left side of the school building as one faces it. The entrance to the polls are toward rear of the school, past the west student parking lot, at a turnaround.
In the race for the Board of Selectmen, incumbent Diane Langlais, an accountant, is facing a challenge from former Selectman Stan Svensson, who is a retired electrician. The term is for three years.
The School Committee has two three-year terms up for grabs, with incumbents Jeffrey Kay and Eric Crane seeking re-election. Parent Kevin Neely is challenging the incumbents for one of the two seats.
In the race for Library Trustees, incumbents Charles Desmond, Irene Conte and Wilbur Cobb are all running for another three-year term, and facing a challenge from John Billings.
Moderator Patricia Fraizer is running unopposed for another one-year term.
There are also races for Town Meeting in precincts 1, 4, 6.
