Official, certified Nov. 3rd election results for the City of Lynn

From the City of Lynn Elections Office: Below are the official results for the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election in Lynn.  Our total number of registered voters in Lynn reached an all-time high of 56,041 while this Election produced our highest number of voters at 36,026, all who either voted by mail, early voted or voted in person at the Polls.

As the saying goes, “It takes a Village” and I am so thankful to my amazing Election co-workers, Karen, Sarah and Deb, our Poll workers (who volunteered to work “early voting” and at our polling locations), Mike Donovan and his Inspectional Service Staff and the School Department for assisting in logistics to help make our voting locations safe for the public.  A special thank you to our City Hall Custodian Israel, who assisted in sanitizing, moving equipment and making our building safe every day along with our Public Health Director Michele Desmarais, for her guidance on Covid-19 safety regulations.

Many thanks also to our I.T. Department Pete and Steve, who have worked with us every day for the past 2 months processing and delivering over 22 thousand mail ballots!  It is truly a pleasure to work with so many dedicated people.  On behalf of my entire staff, we would like to wish everyone a healthy and blessed Thanksgiving!

Be kind, be well, stay safe,

Janet L. Rowe
City Clerk – Election Chief

LCTV member show looking for cast & audience members via Zoom

“THE SECRET SOCIETY OF AGING DIVAS” is a member-produced program for and about women over 50! This show is a fun, zany, uplifting, empowering laugh riot.
It is produced safely through the miracles of ZOOM, YouTube, Facebook Live and LCTV. This is for bragging rights only, but it is great fun and very therapeutic!
Women of all races and religions are wanted, encouraged and welcomed. We want to truly represent women from all cultures and beliefs.
If interested, please message me and I will send you links to our first four episodes. We start “filming” again in late February. You can try it without further obligation from the zoom gallery, or, be a regular.
Put a little spice in the Pandemic by “coming out” to play with other hip Aging Divas. No matter where you live, if you have a good WiFi connection and the Zoom app, you can join us.
P.S. Join the party, make friends, don’t be shy, it’s a gas and you will rock it!!
Much love,
