Not all the incumbents will be seeking reelection, although many will be circulating a petition to be on the ballot. Please know that you can run for any office. If you would like to check in to see if someone is running for reelection, please do not float the question on electronic media. Please call the Town Clerk’s Office (434-2032), or ask the person directly.

Petitions require 16 signatures of registered Huntington voters and are due before 5 pm on Monday, January 29, 2018 (sixth Monday preceding the day of the election). Also due with the petition is a signed Consent of Candidate form.

Finally, and importantly, Vermont statute now requires that the candidate's name on the ballot be identical to the name on the voter checklist, so please check with the Town Clerk to see how you are listed - you can use a nickname, but no titles.

CHECK OUT THE HUNTINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
Huntington Public Library is open on Sundays, noon to 5 pm. In addition to a wide selection of books of all genres, the Library has wifi access and public computer terminals. Huntington participates in the Home Card program, which enables  Huntington and Buels Gore residents to borrow books from participating local libraries (sorry, not Fletcher Free in Burlington). Cardholders can access a variety of online educational resources and also request books through interlibrary loan. It is located in the Union Meeting House in the Lower Village.
