To vote in the upcoming North Adams Schools referendum, a person must be registered to vote, Adams County Clerk Gayla Reinhart said Tuesday.
Midnight next Monday is the deadline to register. For information, call the county clerk's office.
There has been some speculation that anyone residing with the North Adams district is eligible. To cast a vote, however, a person must live within the district and be a registered voter.
Adams County Auditor Bill Borne informed the county commissioners at their meeting on Monday that a new COBRA insurance plan for county employees has been approved.
