Special Town Meeting 11/08/2011

Why is the vote on November 8, 2011 a Special Town Meeting and not a Special Town Election?

November 8, 2011  is not an "Election" as nobody is being elected. This is a Special Town Meeting with ballot questions to be voted on by registered voters of the Town. Per RSA 675:3 - Enactment and Adoption Procedures, amendments to a zoning ordinance shall be by affirmative vote by ballot of a majority of legal voters present. As in the past, zoning amendments go through a public hearing process and are not debated at the actual Town Meeting but are voted on by ballot which is typically done at the same time as the annual elections, but always on a separate ballot from the election process.
