Burlington Approves Noncitizen Voting

The proposed charter change for Burlington now must be considered by the Legislature and the Republican governor.

In January, the Vermont Supreme Court ruled that such voting in local elections in Montpelier doesn’t violate the state constitution. A new complaint was filed in court Tuesday against the city of Winooski by two residents, the Vermont Republican Party and the Republican National Committee, saying allowing noncitizens to vote on matters involving the city’s school board and education budget is unconstitutional.
