Community organizer Asma Elhuni of Hartford, Vermont, greets voters at the polls on March 3, 2020, last year's Town Meeting Day. This year, due to COVID-19, things will be different.

The COVID-19 crisis has interrupted tradition, from holiday celebrations to Vermont's Town Meeting Day. This hour, we take an in-depth look at how individual municipalities are navigating Town Meeting Day this year, and we answer your questions.

  • John Odum, Montpelier city clerk
  • Kent Young, Stratton town clerk
  • Sarah Merriman, Middlesex town clerk
  • Sasha Thayer, Plainfield Select Board chair
