Neighborhood Planning Assemblies (NPAs) are grassroots, neighborhood organizations that were established in each of Burlington's seven Wards to encourage citizen participation in City government. A celebration of our right to vote starts with banner and sign making at the Burlington Police Department, followed by a parade to City Hall Park. Sponsored by the Neighborhood Planning Assemblies, League of Women Voters, and the Center for Community and Neighborhoods.

Parade to Celebrate Democracy and Voting, Aug 21
Aug 21, the Saturday before the primary election, you are invited to meet up in BATTERY PARK at 10AM to walk or bike to city hall. The Clerk's office is open for voting until noon, and people can vote at this time if they wish. Other activities are impromptu soap box for speeches, street performances, juggling, music, and whatever comes. Neighborhood Planning Assemblies in Burlington encourage people to vote in the primary election on Aug 24. Candidates are invited to the assemblies to meet residents and talk about issues before the election, and the PARADE is a grand finale.
