For the first time in 60 years, Wellesley has a new voter precinct.
Voters in Precinct H, which covers a section of land in the center of Wellesley, will vote at Sprague Elementary School along with voters of Precinct B. This is the first time the town had to add a precinct since 1952.
A new precinct was needed because Wellesley reached a population of 28,000 with the most recent census. Federal law says no precinct in the United States can have a population of over 4,000 residents, according to Town Clerk Kathy Nagle.
