>Hi from Middlebury. Got a question for all you clerk pros out there.
>It concerns The town meeting ballot. Specifically, we have two
>openings for Library Trustee and possibly four people to fill those
>slots. One position is for a 1 year term the other is for the full
>term. The statutes (which are always so clear) say:
> VSA 17, 2681(e) "The names of candidates for he same office, but
>for different terms of service, shall be arranged in groups according to
>the length of their respective terms."
>Does that mean that they must choose which term they want to run for?
>That is what I'm leaning toward but wanted some advice.
