Voting & Election Info

Have you ever considered being part of the election process but are unsure how to begin?

A position on the Board of Registrars of Voters might be for you!

We have two vacancies on the board and are in need of two residents who are willing to assist the Clerk with several aspects of the election process.

The Board of Registrars of Voters is comprised of four members. The Town Clerk is an ex officio member and the other 3 members are recommended to and appointed by the Selectboard.
