On November 3, 2020 the Essex Junction voters adopted the Plan for Merger of the Town of Essex and the Village of Essex Junction dated September 24, 2020 and the proposed Charter for merged communities. In November, over 70% of Town voters living in the Village approved merging the Village and the Town. Now, as required by state law, the entire Town will vote, including Village residents, on whether to merge the two governments.
All Village residents are citizens of two municipalities, the Village of Essex Junction and the Town of Essex. The Plan of Merger must be passed by both municipalities for adoption.
If you voted on November 3, 2020 as a Village resident, you can still vote on this question again on or before March 2nd, as a Town resident. More information about the Town ballot can be found on the Essex Voter Information page.
If the majority of voters approve both these proposals, the current Essex Junction and Essex Town governments would be merged into a single Essex government, with the approval of the Vermont State Legislature.
