If you did not get your ballot in time, you can vote in person on Saturday, outside, behind Town Hall.  The polls are open from 8 am - 2:00 pm

Volunteers, elected officials, and appointees should use a designated email for Town business.  Because we are not currently able to provide a "" email address to everyone, we recommend setting up your own email account for Town work.  This email account should be distinct from your personal or other work emails and should only be used for Town business.  This will help you stay organized, as well as comply with Open Meeting Law and Public Records Requests. 

The following is the format suggested.
