ASHLAND – Today was election day in the Town of Ashland.

There were only two contested races on the ballot – a Health Board seat and a Planning Board seat.

All results below are the unofficial results from the Town Clerk. Official results have yet to be certified.

Catherine Jurczyk won the 3-year seat on the Ashland Planning Board with 342 votes.

There are 12,238 voters in the community, so turnout was very very low at just 4% of voters.
