"This is sure to be a great Town Meeting Day - a Vermont tradition which has taken place for over 200 years. The addition of this year's Presidential Primary, with a Vermonter on the ballot, brings extra excitement to this Town Meeting Day and we are expecting a large voter turnout. We are proud of our tradition and the strong communities it has helped build in Vermont," states Secretary Condos.
"I encourage everyone to get out and participate in Town Meeting Day and the Presidential Primary on March 1st. Remember, your VOTE is your VOICE!"
