Vermont law requires that the warning for the annual town meeting contain “any article or articles requested by a petition signed by at least five percent of the voters of the town and filed with the town clerk not less than 47 days before the day of the meeting.” 17 V.S.A. § 2642. Statutory requirements for the content and processing of voter-backed petitions are complicated and nuanced, and unfortunately don’t tell the whole story as various court cases add an additional layer of confusion. During this session, Vermont’s Director of Elections Will Senning will clarify what must be done and which articles must be included on your warning.
Recommended for all municipal officials involved with processing and approving petitioned articles for the town meeting warning including selectboard members, municipal managers, administrators and administrative staff, and town clerks.
