Record number of voters cast ballots in Killington

Killington voters cast ballot in record numbers Tuesday, March 6. 391 total ballots were cast, with 50 absentee ballots submitted. The previous record for votes cast was 291 and last year saw just 250. This was the first year Killington voted by Australian Ballot.

"It was a better turnout that I expected," said Killington Town Clerk Lucrecia Wonsor. "It's defintetly something we hoped for. Some might think we got more votes because of the Presidental Primary this year, but actually, most voters were not tuned it to that here and left it blank... Most of the voters were there to vote on town issues."

About 120 people showed up to the informational meeting at the Elementary School on Monday night, Wonsor estimated.
