Australian ballot voting is a method of voting at local elections recognized by Vermont general law. Under current law, only the municipality’s voters may vote to allow the switch to the Australian ballot system. This checklist is designed to assist selectboards that are transitioning to Australian ballot voting for the upcoming Town Meeting Day, but those already using this system may also find it helpful.
You may also refer to our Australian Ballot Info Sheet for additional information. In addition, our downloadable Municipal Calendar includes additional town meeting related dates. Each town office received an updated print poster in July 2022. For additional assistance, you can also contact the Vermont Secretary of State Elections Division.
If you have additional questions about town meeting requirements, please view our Town Meeting homepage or contact the staff at the VLCT Municipal Assistance Center. Members may reach us at email@example.com or 1-800-649-7915 for assistance. While every effort is made to provide members with the most accurate information possible, these documents do not constitute legal advice.
