Town Elections

2017 Town Offices Open for Election

Town Elections will be held on Tuesday, March 14.  Voting at the Town Hall as usual.  The Town Meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 15th.  The Puddledock Press has posted a series of questions for Candidates to answer, if they so choose, so the voters can get to know them a little better and understand their positions so they may make informed decisions when they vote on March 14.  The Questions are posted below the list of open positions and known candidates.  The answers or statements submitted by the Candidates will be linked to the Candidate's name.  We hope that this service will be of value to our voters and Candidates alike.
