      Need an Absentee Ballot?

      The Orange Town Clerk will be available in the Town House office Monday, March 7, from 3 to 5 pm. 


      Kathy Stacy for School Board

      Orange does have a candidate for the Town's school board rep. Kathy Stacy, who has been serving, will be running again. 

      We'd be happy to post other notices by candidates, along with anything that tells us what you'd do in office.


      Opening for School Board Rep

      The seat for Orange representative to the Mascoma District School Board is open this year, and we need a candidate or two to run for the office on the school ballot. The reward: fostering education in Orange, and $750 per year.

      If you're interested, sign up at the Mascoma SAU office on Route 4 in Enfield (across the street from Dunkin Donuts) between 8:30am and 4:00pm. Deadline is January 30.
