You are not required to have an election for these local offices to fill those vacancies at either the Primary election in August or the November General election. Your selectboard or schoolboard may chose to warn an election for these same days to fill those offices, but it is not required to.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Subject: School Board & Selectboard Vacancies
If a town has a vacancy on their Boards, they are filled at the next special or regular Town Meeting by election. Do the elections in August & November fall into that category? Do we need to have a local ballot to fill those vacancies at the same time?
