Updated January 19, 2022, pending legislation has been signed by the Governor for election law changes related to the 2022 Annual Town Meeting.

For 2022 we are anticipating the Governor will sign Senate Bill S. 172 once it is passed by the legislature. S.172 has been signed by the Governor. This will allow Jericho to vote all items by ballot at Town Meeting March 1, 2022. The ballot will include the Town & School Officers as well as the municipal budget and other Town Meeting Articles. There will also be a separate pink ballot for the Mt Mansfield Unified Union School District budget.

S.223 has been signed by the Governor. Nominating petitions are not required for candidates for local office at the annual meeting.
