Candidates for 2012 Town Election now available

| Comments (0)
The nomination deadline for the 2012 Annual Town Election was Tuesday, February 14, 2012, and nominations are now closed.  The database has been updated with candidates for all townwide offices, along with candidates for Town Meeting in each precinct.  You can examine voting records for the candidates in any specific townwide or precinct-level race.

The Town of Amherst changed its precinct boundaries in the spring of 2012 after data from the 2010 federal census became available.  As a result, all Town Meeting seats in all precincts are vacated, and all 24 seats in each precinct are up for election in 2012.  The eight highest vote-getters in each precinct will receive three-year seats, the next eight will receive two-year seats, and the next eight will receive one-year seats.

Links for Town Meeting candidates in each precinct are shown below, along with links for each townwide office.  For more details, go to the main database selection page or the 2012 election page.
