WALDOBORO"”Waldoboro residents voted to abandon the traditional town meeting format in favor of the voting booth as strong numbers went to the polls on Tuesday.
Supporters of the referendum style of meeting stressed the need to bring more people, especially senior citizens, into the decision-making process.
Waldoboro will join three other Lincoln County towns in substituting a referendum ballot for the annual town meeting.
