The ballot will also contain a question asking if voters will amend the Vermont Constitution to allow more flexibility in the voting age for primary elections.

Assistant Town Clerk and Treasurer Kathy Smardon said early ballots are available at the Town Clerk’s office. Voters can visit Town Hall to vote, to pick up a ballot or to request that a ballot be sent to a family member. Voters can also call the Town Clerk’s office at 878-5121 to have a ballot mailed to them. All ballots must be returned by the time polls close on Election Day.
