Town Meeting Election Forums Begin January 20, 2022

January 11, 2022

Town Meeting Day — on Tuesday, March 1st — is everyone’s chance to weigh in on important issues in our community. To help voters in Chittenden County better understand the people and questions on their local ballots, Town Meeting TV will present a series of candidate forums and budget and ballot presentations in January and February. 


“Forums give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates and their views on important local issues — and be better-informed participants in our democracy,” says Channel Director Meghan O’Rourke.


All Chittenden County candidates, whether listed on the ballot or running write-in campaigns, are invited to appear on live candidate call-in forums. Forums air live on Comcast channel 1087 and Burlington Telecom cable Channels 17 and 317, online at, and will be live-streamed on Town Meeting TV’s YouTube Channel:


Because of the pandemic, all of this year’s forums may be held on Zoom. The public and the press are invited to participate virtually and viewers are encouraged to call 802-862-3966 to ask their municipal officials and candidates questions.
