ELLSWORTH — As long as Marc Blanchette goes to the polls and votes for himself on Tuesday, he is practically guaranteed to be the newest member of the City Council.
The only thing that could derail his candidacy, it seems, is a last-minute write-in campaign.
Blanchette, who currently serves on the city’s Planning Board, is the only candidate on the ballot to fill out the remainder of former Councilor Michael Boucher’s term.
Michael Boucher resigned from the council in late 2012. His brother Matthew also had served on the council, but Matthew’s seat was declared vacant in August of 2012 after he missed meetings.
If elected, Blanchette will serve until the next municipal election in November.
Polls in Ellsworth will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Ellsworth voters also will be voting on the Regional School Unit 24 school budget when they go into the voting booth on Tuesday.
