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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
