WCUUSD School Budget Re-Vote Tuesday, May 7

The second school budget passed on May 7. 

Here are the results of the combined five towns in the district:

YES: 1222
NO: 1023


Because the WCUUSD School Budget article did not pass on Town Meeting Day, the WCUUSD School Board has drafted a new proposed budget for the district for the 2024-2025 school year.

The election to vote on the new budget will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2024 at the Calais Town Office (NOT the Town Hall) from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

• Voters are strongly encouraged to vote in person at the Town Office any time during regular office hours between now and May 7.

• Voters may pick up a ballot from the Town Office at any time during business hours between now and election day. A voter may not pick up a blank ballot from the Town Office for anyone except themself. Please contact the Town Office if you are unable to come during regular hours and we can make arrangements to get you a ballot.
• Voters who are physically unable to come to the Town Office may request that a ballot be brought to them. Two Justices of the Peace will deliver the ballot to the voter's home and return the voted, sealed, signed ballot back to the Town Office. Please contact the Town Clerk to learn more: townclerk@calaisvermont.gov or (802) 456-8720.
• Voters may no longer request a ballot to be mailed to them. Due to the sometimes extended delivery times through the USPS, there may not be sufficient time for a ballot to be mailed from the Town Office to the voter and back before May 7.

• Voters are advised not to return a voted ballot by mail after Monday, April 29. In order to ensure that we receive your ballot in time for it to count, please return your ballot directly to the Town Office on or before the May 7 election.
• Voters may return completed, sealed ballots to the Town Office any time before the close of polls at 7:00 pm on May 7; outside of office hours, please deposit voted ballots in the secure office drop box in the Town Office vestibule.

Sample ballots, warnings, and voter information will be posted at the Adamant Co-op, the East Calais General Store, East Calais Post Office, the Maple Corner Community Store, and the Calais Town Office. Please talk to your neighbors and make sure they know about this election! Because it is a Special Election, some people may not be aware of it. 

The Town Office will be closed for all business except voting on Tuesday, May 7, 2024.
