About the Annual Town Meeting

Vermont is the only state which allows its citizens direct participation in the governing of their town. About 40 towns participate in this process. Town Meeting Day is a State Holiday and occurs annually on the first Tuesday in March. A citizen is a full-time resident of the State of Vermont. Only legal voters may participate in town meeting (see page 11 of the Citizen’s Guide to Vermont Town Meetings, above).

Citizens of the Town of Roxbury VT meet each year to decide on various items pertaining to the running of the Town, and elects its town officials. Roxbury uses two voting methods: floor vote and Australian Ballot. A tabulator machine is used for all articles requiring a vote by Australian Ballot.

Reports by Town Officers, approval of monies necessary for town maintenance, taxes, and election of Town Officers and Montpelier-Roxbury School District offices are some of the items discussed and voted on. Non-residents cannot participate in Town Meetings.
