As a result of recent Town Charter changes, counting votes for write-in candidates on Tuesday’s ballot has changed. If a Brattleboro citizen wishes to be considered a write-in candidate for any town office (including town meeting member) that candidate must now declare his/her candidacy to the town clerk no later than 7:00 PM on election day.
Only write-in votes for declared candidates will be counted after the polls close. Providing they have garnered the most votes in the race, write-in candidates for town officers need a minimum of 30 votes to win, town meeting members need a minimum of 10 votes.
There are still several town meeting member positions available in each district. If interested, contact the Brattleboro Town Clerk’s office 251-8129 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Brattleboro polling hours are 9:00 am to 7:00 pm in the BUHS gym on Fairground Road.
