Coach helps voters

Poll worker Eric Bennett, center, helps Dan Ryan, right, cast his ballot Tuesday afternoon at the Harrietstown Town Hall in Saranac Lake. At left is poll worker Allan Wright. Bennett is the athletic director and varsity football head coach for the Saranac Lake Central School District, and he took a personal day off work to be a poll worker — although it turned out that the district called a snow day anyway. He said his parents have long been poll workers at the Brighton Town Hall but are not doing it this year because their age makes them at risk for the COVID-19 pandemic — so Eric decided to continue the family tradition.
