What will we be voting on?

Town Meeting Day (each year)

On the first Tuesday of every March, Vermont towns hold an election (or meeting) to:

  • Elect local officials
  • Approve town and school budgets for the upcoming year, and
  • Vote on any other town-related issues to be brought before the voters

State Primaries & General Elections (every 2 years)

State Primaries are held in August and General Elections are held in November of even numbered years, to vote on:

  • Vermont legislative seats (Senators & Representatives)
  • VT Governors and statewide officials (including Justices of the Peace)
  • U.S. Senators and Representatives

Voting Districts - State Elections Only

Effective April 2022, Milton was divided into three voting districts (House Districts) - "Grand Isle Chittenden", "Chittenden-Franklin" and "Chittenden-25".  The voting districts are essential in State elections as they determine legislative representation. Click on the map links below to helps determine which district you belong to.

These districts are only used for State elections - we do not use separate districts for local elections (Annual Town Meeting).  On Town Meeting Day, all voters will be directed into the Community Room.

Maps

What district are you in?  This interactive map allows you to search for a specific address and will place a pin on the map and tell you what district that address is in.  You can also click on a given parcel on the map, and it will display the address and the district.

Political Campaign Signs

  • You must obtain permission from a property owner before you place any signs on private property.
  • Political campaign signs are not allowed on Town property except in the green strip between the municipal parking lot and Bombardier Road on Election Day.  (As early as the close of business day the night before.)
  • Signs must be removed immediately after the election.
  • Signs posted within the public right of way (30 feet from the center of a road) are subject to be removed by the Town or VTRANS (Route 7).  Signs posted 10-15 feet from the sidewalk are usually a safe distance from the right of way.

More detailed sign guidance can be found at the Secretary of State's website.
