Highlights: ~Regarding polling places: Vince did a survey in Ward 7 about site preference and 85% want to return to Hunt School. He and Paul will be taking this up with the full Board of Civil Authority. We learned that the Ward 4 polling place stayed at St. Mark's because ward 4 clerk and inspectors didn't think there was time before Town Meeting to make the move. Discussion is ongoing. ~Regarding the Board of Civil Authority (aka City Council), the City Clerk's office (Ben Pacy, Lori Olberg), and Ward Clerks (Couture 4, Noyes 7) and Inspectors (Gilbert 4 , Kelley 4, Barch 4; Deliduka 7, Hossley 7, Riley 7): there could be a presentation at an upcoming NPA by the City Clerk's office about what clerks and inspectors do. ~Regarding increasing voter turnout: ideas flowed freely -- many that have worked well in Burlington in the past, and some things yet to try. Getting our stats together so we know our history and our personal best will help us set goals that are both realistic and challenging.
