  • If you need to speak with a Town Officer, we are here Monday through Thursday  9 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Generally the Treasurers are here Mondays and Wednesdays while the Town Clerks are here Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Due to the small space we can’t follow social distancing protocols and all work at the same time.

PLEASE NOTE :  Voting changes for Town Meeting 2021 

After meeting with the Select Board on December 17, 2020 and considering all scenarios, we have decided to mail Town Meeting ballots to all active voters, as was done by the State for the November election.  This means that all 715 active voters will be receiving their ballot in the mail with postage paid in both directions.  

The ballot will contain the election of town officers as well the choice to vote yes or no on ALL the articles on the Town and School warnings.  Brace yourselves, because the ballot will be many pages!!  By Vermont law, the early/absentee ballots will be sent out by February 10, 2021.  Voting in person will also be available on March 2, 2021 at the Town House in Marlboro Center from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.       

~  Forrest Holzapfel, Town Clerk  

Interested in getting involved in your town government? 

There is an opening on the Marlboro Select Board for a three-year term beginning March 3, 2021. If you would like to know more about the position and duties, you can read a summary at the bottom of the page here https://marlborovt.us/boards-minutes/select-board/ or speak with a current or past Select Board member. 

The other positions to be elected by Australian ballot at Town Meeting on March 2, 2021 will be Lister, Auditor, Constable, Trustee of Public Funds, and Town Agent, as well as one three-year term and two one-year terms on the School Board. 

Many incumbents for these positions are seeking reelection, but any town voter may submit a petition to be included on the ballot for any position.   

Another law change the Legislature has made for these pandemic times is that candidates for local office DO NOT need to gather signatures to be put on the ballot, only a Candidate Consent form is needed.  

To get yourself on the ballot, please contact the Town Clerk.  The deadline to submit the candidate consent form to the Town Clerk is Monday January 25, 2021 at 5 p.m.
