2021 Town Meeting Warning

Annual Town Election Ballot 03/02/21

Notice to Legal Voters of Cabot

In 2021, there are two Select Board seats open: a 2-year seat and a 3-year seat. The Legislature has waived the requirement for candidates to collect petitions from town residents in order to be placed on the ballot; you simply have to submit a Consent of Candidate form with the Cabot Town Clerk’s office by 5:00 p.m. Monday, January 25, 2021. You may fill out this form at the Cabot Town Clerk’s Office at 3084 Main Street, Cabot, VT 05647.

The Town of Cabot Select Board has voted to move all 2021 voting to Australian Ballot for the Annual Town Meeting in lieu of the Covid-19 pandemic. Voting will take place at the Town Clerk’s Office on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. located at the Willey Building. Ballots are being mailed out to all registered voters so that people can vote safely from home and return their ballots by mail. You may, however, bring your ballot in and vote in person within the hours mentioned above, or just drop your ballot off on March 2, 2020 in our drop box or in person.

Also, as a reminder, the Town Report will not be mailed to you unless you request one. Copies will be available in all the downtown businesses and we will have copies at the Town Clerk’s Office. You may request a copy by calling us at 563-2279 or

The Cabot Town Clerk’s Office remains open during normal hours Monday – Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm.  HOWEVER, that will be re-evaluated daily based on the evolving situation with COVID-19.  Researchers and anyone needing information are allowed to come in by appointment, only.


This is something to be aware of regarding wipes being flushed:
Please help us get the word out: DO NOT FLUSH WIPES, even if the package says “flush able.” Throw them in your trash can. Wastewater system staff have to clean them out of pumps, pipes, and screens BY HAND, increasing their risk of exposure to COVID-19, which may survive in feces for two to 14 days. Google it – disinfectant wipe clogging has become an emergency in many states.
The same is true of private septic systems. Reports from around Vermont indicate that more septic tanks are being pumped out; this waste is then taken to municipal sewer plants – which are facing a big increase in seepage and can’t handle any more! Please remind residents to flush only pee, poo, and toilet paper, for their own and the community’s health
Thank you.

Betty Ritter, Town Clerk/Treasurer

PLEASE continue to follow the recommended guidelines of the CDC and the VT Department of Health: wash your hands, practice “social distancing”; avoid large gatherings; and if feeling unwell with symptoms of the virus, stay home and call your primary care physician. We have been told not to go to the Emergency Room or Express Care to call your primary care physician instead.  YOUR continued good health is the primary concern.  Stay healthy, follow the guidelines, keep positive, and know “this too will pass”.
