Elections

Ardentown officers and committee members are elected by a majority of the Town Meeting, which convenes four times per year, typically at the Candlelight Theatre. Any person 18 years of age or older who is and has been a resident of the community for 30 days or more is eligible to vote in Ardentown elections. Non-resident leaseholders do not vote in Town Meetings.
