Open elected positions
March 1, 2011

Lincoln's Town Meeting will be on Monday, February 2, 2011; Australian Ballot voting will occur on Tuesday, March 1. There are many needs and opportunities for you to get involved in local government, and to do your part to serve the people of our community. See below for a listing of elected offices that will be up for vote on March 1st.

Below you will find copies of petitions for you to print out yourself; packets of paper copies can be found outside the door to the town office. You can pick them up yourself at any time, no need to ask Sally to get one. Each of the attached documents has a different due date, so make sure to pay close attention to the deadlines:

Document Required
Signatures Required
Due Date

   January 24, 2011 / 5pm

not applicable
   January 26, 2011

**Important note about deadlines: These petition deadlines are very tight for us. They are set by state statute, and actually fall AFTER our deadline for preparing the town report proof for our printer. If you know that you will be turning in a petition at the very last minute, it will be helpful if you notify either the Town Clerk at 453-2980, or Auditor, Judith Harris, at 453-6384. You are not required to notify us, but we would greatly appreciate it.

If you think you might be interested in running for office, I would be happy to try to help answer any questions you have either about the office you are running for, or about the process of getting elected. If you don't feel comfortable talking to me about it, the VT Secretary of State's office is a good resource for you, or you can ask members of our Board of Civil Authority as well. The Board of Civil Authority consists of local people in our community who are in charge of elections in Lincoln. I am including their contact information below.
