The Northeast Kingdom Members-at-Large Unit is actively promoting voter education and voter participation.
For St. Johnsbury residents: the interviews of the three candidates in the one contested race on St. Johnsbury's Town Meeting Day ballot, for two one-year seats on the Selectboard, are now available to view online at http://www.katv.org so please take a look and please let others know they are there to watch.
We had a member presentation on Ranked Choice Voting, which could make a very big difference in how our communities in Vermont approach choosing leaders! If you'd like to help out with this project, contact us using the form below.
We were also briefed on the project of making sure polling locations are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. here in St. Johnsbury and eventually statewide. We have gotten a lot of feedback at our information/registration tables that people find St. J's polling hours of 10-7 problematic, so we're mobilizing! If you'd like to help out with this, please contact us using the form below.
We also briefed on the possibilities of doing information/registration tables at the St. J School and elsewhere to get people involved for Town Meeting Day. Also, the possibility of doing brief interviews on KATV of candidates in St. J's one contested race, for a one-year Select Board seat. If you would like to help with either of these, please contact us using the form below.
