Danville voters will consider a charter change at Town Meeting
Danville voters will consider a charter change at Town Meeting this year that will switch the town from its pre-pandemic tradition of conducting much of its municipal and school business from the floor to all Australian balloting. Voters at both the town and school meetings next month will be asked via a pair of warrant articles at each meeting if they want to switch all business to ballot measures. Before the pandemic, Danville had been voting on its budgets by all-day balloting but special appropriations, officers and other measures were decided from the floor. That all changed with the pandemic, when Town Meetings switched to Australian balloting, often with ballots mailed to voters.
