Electronic Voting Devices

Electronic Voting Coming to Special Town Meeting

In response to the Annual Town Meeting 2019 vote, Electronic Voting devices will be piloted at the Special Town Meeting in December and Annual Town Meeting 2020 in the spring.

Electronic Voting will provide complete transparency for every vote and should eliminate the need for time-consuming standing votes in most, if not all, situations. 

The results of the electronic votes will be available on the Town website within 10 days of the meeting.

For more information on Electronic Voting, see the Electronic Voting Committee Report.
