New Voting Convenience Center for Silver City Election on March 3

The convenience center will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, March 3, 2015

The Town of Silver City is pleased to announce that they will have a Voting Convenience Center for the March 3rd Election for the positions of Councilor in District 1 and District 3.

Voters in District 1 and District 3 may cast their votes at one convenient location—the Silver City Woman's Club at 411 Silver Heights Boulevard. Voters will no longer have to determine their specific polling location for their Council District. The Silver City Woman's Club is centrally located for all voters and easily accessible. We are confident this change will make voting more convenient for our Silver City residents. If you have any questions, please call the Town Clerk at 534-6346.
