These pages provide local officials and members of the public with information about Vermont’s municipal governments and the laws that apply to them.

Vermont’s communities could not function without the service and commitment of its public officials. We believe it is important that our local leaders and the citizens of our towns have help navigating the complex and ever-changing laws and rules that apply to them. The Secretary of State's office has traditionally been that place where citizens and local official alike turn for assistance. In support of that, we offer free publications and regular training programs intended to help local officials and other Vermont citizens strengthen Vermont’s communities.

If you have suggestions for other information that would be useful to include, please contact us.

Jim Condos
Vermont Secretary of State
