Below you will find information that might be useful to know for the local elections on Tuesday, March 1. Voting for the South East Windham School District will take place in addition to the annual Town Assembly Day elections.
Polling locations for the three districts of Brattleboro are the American Legion, 32 Linden St., from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Due to COVID-19, CDC-approved masks will be required (and provided if needed) to enter the American Legion to vote, and hand sanitizer or gloves will also be provided. If you cannot wear a mask and have not voted absent, there will be space outside for you to vote. Due to social distancing and reduced capacity inside, please be prepared for possible wait times.
Parking is available at the American Legion, State Building, and Civic Center parking lots. There are handicapped parking spaces near the entrance to the American Legion.
There is a wheelchair just inside the door with a ramp for anyone who needs it.
Members of the municipal assembly are still required in Districts 1 and 3, along with lists and trustees of public funds.
Anyone interested in running for a position as a registered candidate must file a nomination paper with the city clerk before the close of the polls on election day in order for their vote to be counted. Nominations will be posted on a bulletin board at polling stations so that voters are aware of those interested in vacancies. A minimum of 10 votes for members of the municipal assembly and 30 votes for municipal officers are required to be elected.
Election information, including sample ballots, is posted at www.brattleboro.org.
Unofficial election results will be posted on the city’s website as soon as possible after the polls close that evening.
