"Nobody that I know working for the town has received anything like that," Town Manager Stefan Pakulski said Tuesday night.
MCLU attorney Zach Heiden said he got a secondhand report that a Readfield resident arrived at the town office to vote and was told that there had been a bomb scare and to return later. That report was passed on to the Department of the Secretary of State, and the report was briefly reported Tuesday night by the Associated Press.
Heiden said he was concerned because a bomb threat and evacuation could disrupt voting and pose a threat to ballots already cast. He was glad to hear that voting had proceeded normally in Readfield.
