School District 2021 Annual Meetings and Elections Important Update

Recorded onJanuary 13, 2021

In October of 2020 Act 162 took effect, allowing school districts that normally vote from the floor at their annual and special meetings to instead use Australian ballot by vote of the school board. If the school board votes to use Australian ballot, an informational hearing is required pursuant to 17 V.S.A. § 2680(g). Informational hearings can be held remotely during the state of emergency per Act 92. This School District Meeting Information Sheet explains the changes in Act 162 and Act 92.


This webinar included Sue Ceglowski (VSBA Executive Director), Will Senning (Director of the Elections Division of the Secretary of State's Office) and JP Isabelle (Elections Division of the Secretary of State's Office) answering questions about the temporary changes to elections laws as well as changes currently under consideration in the Legislature (H.48 draft 1.1)
