Locals hit the ballot box in Springfield

At close to 5 p.m., 1,030 voters had already turned out to cast their ballots on Tuesday, Aug. 9 in Springfield for the Vermont Primary Election, according to Town Clerk Barbara Courchesne.

Democrat party voters in Springfield nominated their two incumbent legislators, Rep. Alice Emmons and Rep. Robert Forguites during Tuesday’s primary election.




Congratulations to Sue Minter
Democratic nominee for Vermont governor.


  1. glad to see there is no favoritism shown towards the Democrats,

    1. The Republican signs are behind the saw horse. If you enlarge the picture Randy Gray's granddaughter and wife are holding his signs. Randy was at Springfield Hospital checking on a sick parent.

  2. Who did the Republicans nominate? Seems like a one-sided report to me.

    1. For state senate, the seat was uncontested. Mark Donka, Randy Gray and Jack Williams are on the Republican ticket.

  3. Didn't you realize it yet? If you're Republican in Vermont your votes may be counted, but they rarely count.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
