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.

Judge nullifies voter registration deadline
In the last election in Burlington, a woman came to vote who had registered after the deadline. She was not allowed to vote. She was informed of her right to appeal to a judge. The judge allowed her to vote. Does this mean voter registration deadlines are not enforceable? People who register close to the deadline should bring their registration papers to the polls because their names will not be on the checklist.
