Notice to all Village of North Bennington & Shaftsbury District 1 Voters
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the North Bennington Graded School District (NBGSD) Prudential Committee and the NBGSD Clerk have opted to mail ballots to district voters. Those ballots will be mailed to all North Bennington Village and Shaftsbury District 1 residents in early February. If you choose to drop off your ballot rather than returning by mail, the North Bennington Train Station Depot will be open for drop offs from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM on March 2nd. One person will be allowed to enter the building at a time.
We STRONGLY encourage you to mail in your ballot. If you wish to receive an early absentee ballot for the Annual Town Meeting, the MAU Annual Meeting, and the Regional Tech Center Annual Meeting, you must request one from your Town Clerk.
The NBGSD Annual Meeting will be held virtually on Saturday, February 27 at 9 a.m. via Zoom.
North Bennington residents are reminded that they are part of the Town of Bennington and are entitled to vote for matters pertaining to the Town of Bennington, MAU, and also the Tech Center. Please see the attached Voter Information Page from the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union FY20 Annual Report for more information.
Shaftsbury District 1 residents must vote in Shaftsbury for all town matters. Neither the town of Bennington nor Shaftsbury are mailing ballots unless requested. If you wish to receive an early absentee ballot for the Shaftsbury Annual Town Meeting, the Bennington Annual Town and Tech Center Meetings, you must request one from the Town Clerks listed below.
