OLD TOWN, Maine — The city of Old Town will offer special voter registration hours in advance of the Nov. 4 elections. The registrar of voters will be available on the basement level of the Bangor Savings Bank at 265 Main St. to sign up new voters and correct existing voting lists.

The hours are as follows:

    Monday, Oct. 27, through Friday, Oct. 31 — 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

      Monday, Nov. 3 — 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

        Tuesday, Nov. 4 (Election Day) — 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

        New voters also will be able to register at the polls, but Registrar Patricia Brochu cautioned that a heavy turnout is expected and new registrations can slow down the voting process.
