There will be a virtual Meet the Candidates forum on Tuesday, August 25 at 5pm via Zoom. Several of the candidates agreed to organize the event as door-to-door canvassing is frowned upon during the coronavirus pandemic.
There is a special election on September 1 to fill a full term and a 1 year unexpired term on the Board of Selectman. Early voting and mail-in voting for this election – which also serves as the state primary – is already underway.
Anyone is welcome to log into the candidate forum via Zoom by following THIS LINK

The one-year candidates will speak after: Steven Chambers, Tristan LaLiberte and Sara Rufli (Randall Lawrence had not responded to the invitation as of press time)
