Easton voters go to the polls Tuesday, May 4, to vote for council president and town council members for Wards 2 and 4.
The three incumbents — President Megan Cook, Ward 2 Councilman Donald Abbatiello, and Ward 4 Councilman Rev. Elmer Neal Davis Jr. are unopposed.
All three are seeking a full four-year term to their respective positions:
• Abbatiello won election in May 2019 to serve the last two years of Pete Lesher’s term. Lesher won election to the Talbot County Council in November 2018 and vacated his town council seat.
• Cook was elected town council president in a special election after the death of John Ford.
• Davis was appointed after Cook became president, vacating her Ward 4 seat.
The election will be held from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Easton Firehouse, 315 Leonard Rieck Drive, in Easton. Absentee ballots must be returned to the town office by 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 4.
Easton has staggered four-year terms for elected officials, with elections every two years. In 2023, voters will choose a mayor, and town council members for Wards 1 and 3.
