Frequently Asked Question: What does the language of the ballot question mean?


The Bottom Line: A Yes vote means yes, a No vote means no. 

Answer: The question on the ballot is asking the voter if they agree or do not agree with exempting the debt authorized by Town Meeting from the requirements of Prop 2 1/2, which is a state law that also sets the language of the question. Town Meeting authorized the funding for the library project during Annual Town Meeting on May 21 2022, with the condition that no money could be borrowed unless the town votes to exempt that borrowing from the Prop 2 1/2 requirements. That's the question that voters are answering with this ballot, whether or not to meet that condition. 



The deadline to register to vote in the June 28 Election was Wednesday, June 8th by 5pm.
