Traditional Town Meetings

The first part of the traditional Town Meeting is held annually on the second Tuesday of March to vote for the town officers that are elected, and to also vote on the warrant articles that are on the official town ballot. The second part of Town Meeting is held the following Saturday, to vote on the remaining town warrant articles that are not on the official town ballot and to conduct any remaining town business. A Town Moderator is allowed under State law to adjourn a meeting that has run for a very long period and reconvene it at a later date, usually one week from the date of the meeting, in order to finish the town's business. You cannot vote absentee at the Town Meeting that is held on Saturday. You may vote absentee and request a ballot for the first part of Town Meeting that is held on that Tuesday.
