woburn votesVoters will have a unique opportunity to prepare for the next election this Saturday when the city of Woburn offers drive-up voter registration at City Hall.  The idea is meant to highlight and get the word out that the last day for voter registration is Wed., October 15.

City officials and volunteers with voter registration cards will be in the parking lot of City Hall, 10 Common St., on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon to help prospective voters who drive up. Drivers may also park and walk over for assistance.

The drive-in registration is also available for any other Massachusetts Voters as well. Woburn officials will fax the information from out-of-town registrants to the proper community, then follow up by mailing the original information. If you have any questions or concerns about your rights as a voter, check out www.mass-vote.org a statewide, non-partisan agency.

Woburn Civic Welcome WagonThe Woburn Civic Welcome Wagon is still in need of volunteers to help welcome new families for the Holiday Season and the New Year. The Welcome Wagon is made up of current Woburn residents who have volunteered to go out and greet people and families who have recently moved to the Woburn area. New residents are greeted with a booklet of helpful information including local government figure information, helpful Woburn websites, and a calendar of events among other things.

The booklet also includes important numbers such as to city departments, local schools, and local Woburn hospitals and emergency numbers. It also includes detailed information about local organizations and other generally helpful information to have if you are new to Woburn. Along with the booklet new residents get voter registration information, postal service information, a small gift, and most importantly a familiar face to say "hello" to!

Wondering what to do with that old television, computer monitor or appliance that is broken, unwanted or unused and just taking up space?
