1 Vol. 15, # 6 June 2013 A Message from the Secretary In my last message, I commented on the wonderful, spring weather we had been having. However, it wouldn t be Vermont if it didn t change on a dime and give us several weeks of onagain off-again thunderstorms and harsh winds. Quote of the Month We identify the flag with almost everything we hold dear on earth, peace, security, liberty, our family, our friends, our home But when we look at our flag and behold it emblazoned with all our rights we must remember that it is equally a symbol of our duties. Every glory that we associate with it is the result of duty done. Calvin Coolidge Luckily, the end of the legislature has had the opposite effect on the Capitol: we are back to a more predictable schedule, which allows us to focus on implementing recently passed laws and updating our information for the public. One of my favorite things about the summer is that it provides me with the opportunity to get out into the community and make trips across the state (without fear of being called back to the State House to testify!). My first trip is to Warren as part of my Got Transparency Tour. Keep your eyes out for similar trips in your local papers! Or, if you would like to feature a presentation, please reach out to Zoe, my new Executive Assistant, at I also look forward to speaking to both the Vermont Girls State and Boys State participants later this month. No matter how many times I get to do it, there is never anything more inspiring than talking to bright, young Vermonters who care about politics and the future of this great state of ours! Wishing you all a wonderful (and not too windy) Flag Day! It is a great opportunity to think about the freedom and democracy our flag represents. In this Issue Quote of the Month... 1 Sincerely, Voice From the Vault... 2 Opinions of Opinions Elections Calendar James C. Condos Secretary of State 128 State Street, Montpelier, VT

2 Voice from the Vault by Tanya Marshall, State Archivist To URPERA and Beyond! If you are looking for some exciting local news on the subject of land records, here it is: Connecticut s Regulation concerning Real Property Electronic Recording. Passed early this spring, the new regulation became effective on April 1, 2013, making Connecticut the 43rd state to support the electronic recording (often called e-recording) of land records. If you are wondering where this puts Vermont, well, if this were a contest we are clearly in the bottom ten of the all the states and territories. Yet, this is not necessarily a bad thing. First, it takes a while for laws to catch up with technology. Most early adopters of electronic recording had to maintain dual systems, one that met their legal requirements (usually wedded to paper) and another that met their drive to use emerging technologies. Second, early adopters also had to drive the bus at the same time as they were building it; developing policies, procedures, standards, and other controls as they go. So, being last, or close to last, gives ample opportunity to benefit from lessons learned while taking advantage of the latest best practices and standards. When it comes to making changes to records, no one wants to rush and be sorry. One of those standards that the early adopters worked hard to implement is a uniform law called the Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act (URPERA). Approved in 2004 by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL), the same organization that created the model Uniform Commercial Code that has since been enacted in every state, URPERA expands upon the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) and the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (esign). URPERA explicitly gives land records officials the authority to accept records in electronic format and also electronically record and manage their land records in electronic format if they have the means and desire to do so. URP- ERA also sets forth a set of standards to ensure the interoperability of electronic land records across jurisdictions. Connecticut adopted URPERA in 2008 and is the first and only New England state to do so. While Massachusetts introduced legislation (H.37) this year, the bill has not moved. Therefore, if we compare ourselves to our New England peers, most are like us. We can also see from Connecticut s efforts that it takes quite a bit of time to make e-recording a reality. Even with new regulations, it will take additional time for Connecticut town clerks who would like to implement e-recording to do so. As noted above, when it comes to making changes to records, no one wants to rush and be sorry, but having a close neighbor and friend to watch is exciting! 2 Opinions Vol. 15, #6

3 Opinions of Opinions by Secretary of State Jim Condos In our monthly Opinions, we provide what we believe the law requires based upon our legal judgment, years of observing Vermont's local government practices, and Vermont Court decisions. This information is intended as a reference guide only and should not replace the advice of legal counsel. 1. Minutes of meetings do not have to be posted. Although some towns or boards post minutes on the bulletin board or on a website, this is done as a courtesy only the law does not require posting of minutes. 1 V.S.A. 312 only requires that minutes be made available for inspection and copying within five days of the meeting. 2. Minutes are not transcripts of the proceedings. Minutes must contain at least the following: list of board members present; list of all other active participants; all motions, proposals, and resolutions made, and what action taken or disposition was made; and the results of any votes, with a record of individual votes IF a roll call vote was requested. If a clerk or secretary to the board attempts to include too much additional discussion with attribution to participants, or to characterize discussions, a board can be forced to spend too much time "correcting" the minutes. Minutes are not intended to be a transcription of the discussion but rather a clear summary of action taken for future reference. 1 V.S.A. 312(b)(1) 3. BCA can appoint presiding officer if clerk is unable to serve. The town clerk is generally the presiding officer at an election unless the town by previous vote at an annual meeting or by charter has provided otherwise. 17 V.S.A. 2452(a). However, if a town clerk is unavailable or is unable to serve at a particular election, the board of civil authority must appoint another person, who is a voter in the jurisdiction, to serve as presiding officer. Also, if the town has more than one polling place, the board of civil authority must appoint a presiding officer for each additional polling place. 17 V.S.A. 2452(b) 4. BCA may appoint assistant election officials to help on Election Day. If not enough members of the board of civil authority are available to staff the polling places on an Election Day, prior to the day of the election, the board of civil authority must appoint a sufficient number of voters from each district to serve as assistant election officials in each polling place. 17 V.S.A The board must make every effort to appoint an equal number of legal voters of the town (and district) from each major party. These election officials must be sworn in before the polls open and activity begins. 5. The BCA must call a special meeting if it needs to act and does not have time to comply with the standard warning provisions for BCAs. The board of civil authority may call a special meeting using the notice requirements in 1 V.S.A. 312(c)(2) if it must take action and there is not time to use the regular meeting warning provisions in 24 V.S.A The open meeting law in Title 1 requires the town to notify the board members as well as the public and any press that has asked to be notified of the time, place and purpose of a special meeting at least 24 hours before the meeting. This does not have to be a formal agenda - but the general purpose of the meeting must be provided in the meeting notice. The notice must be posted in or near the municipal clerk s office and in at least two other public places in the municipality. Office of the Vermont Secretary of State 3

4 OPINIONS OF OPINIONS CONTINUED: 6. BCA or voters can establish polling places. Each polling place must be in an accessible public place in the voting district (unless all districts in your town vote at one polling place) as designated by the board of civil authority; however, the voters may designate different polling places at an annual or special meeting. 17 V.S.A. 2501, Boards of civil authority and/or town voters must choose polling places that are ADA accessible. It is also a best practice to have all polling places in a nonsectarian building whenever possible. Although rulings in court cases in other states have upheld the use of a church all-purpose room when absolutely no other public place is available, it is a best practice to take this time between elections to find and designate a truly public place. 7. BCA sets polling hours for elections. The board of civil authority may meet from time to time to change the hours when the polling place will be open for a particular election or for all future elections. All polls must stay open until 7:00 p.m. It is our general advice that having consistent hours for polling places encourages voters to know when they can count on the polling place to be open but if the BCA believes it is in the best interest of the municipality, the BCA can vote to change the hours for voting. 17 V.S.A Schedule Australian Ballot votes to avoid holidays. If voting is to be by Australian ballot, it is a best practice to NOT schedule a special town or special school district meeting on Mondays or the day after a holiday. Many voters pick up an absentee ballot on the day before the election, or request ballots to be delivered to them (if sick or disabled), so it is best to select a day when the town clerk s office will be open on the day before the election. Voters are also accustomed to having the public informational hearing on the night before the election, so it is best to ensure that that meeting doesn t fall on a Sunday or holiday. 9. When a budget is rejected by Australian ballot the legislative body may hold a vote on a revised budget with seven days notice. When a town or school district or other municipal corporation uses the Australian ballot system of voting for the budget, if the budget is defeated, the legislative body may warn another election on a revised budget with at least seven days warning and with at least five days notice of the informational meeting. 17 V.S.A. 2680(c) and (g). The vote must also be in the same location as the first vote. 17 V.S.A. 2680(c). We suggest that boards consider giving at least 10 days notice and try to keep the voting on Tuesdays when voters expect elections. But the statute does provide latitude for failed budget circumstances. The normal 30 to 40 day warning period for a special meeting or election does not apply to Australian ballot budget votes when the budget has failed to pass at all prior annual and special meetings. 10. Budget rejected by floor vote needs 30 to 40 days before a new budget can be voted on. If a budget is voted for the town or school district from the floor at a traditional town meeting, and the budget article is defeated, the legislative body must warn another special meeting for not less than 30 nor more than 40 days. Of course, this does not happen very often because at a traditional town meeting the budget article can be amended from the floor. If the voters are unhappy with the budget presented by the board it may revise or lower the budget during the meeting. Moderators can educate the voters about the best process to use to vote amendments so that the article is not defeated before a satisfactory budget number is determined by the voters. 4 Opinions Vol. 15, #6

5 FLAG FACTS: Did you know... The original flag had 13 red and white stripes with a Union Jack in the upper left corner. There was, for a brief time, a US flag with 15 stars and 15 stripes, made to welcome Kentucky and Vermont. The US government reverted to the 13 stripe model as the new version of the flag looked too cluttered. This 15 stars and stripes version, however, inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star Spangled Banner in If harm should come to the flag, it must be disposed of in a dignified manner; namely by burning; which is the proper way of destroying a flag that is long in the tooth. The flag must not be allowed to touch the ground, but need not be disposed of if dropped by accident. If the flag is displayed at night, it must be illuminated. The current version of the US flag was designed by an 18 year old high school student, who only received a B- for his efforts. Robert Heft, took exception to this grade, and issued his teacher a challenge: if Heft s design proposal was accepted by Congress, he would deserve and receive an A. Heft earned his A, and by presidential proclamation in 1958, his design was officially adopted as the nation s flag. The red, white and blue stripes are strictly defined as Dark Red (Pantone 193 C), White (Pantone safe), and Navy Blue (281 C). To view the source, or to read more "Flag Facts," visit: OPINIONS OF OPINIONS CONTINUED: 11. The selectboard or school board can warn a special meeting to reconsider the same article as many times as it wishes during a year, except for bond votes. Voters may only petition for reconsideration of an article once on the same article or issue during a twelve-month period. However, except for bond votes which are limited to twice in a calendar year or any 12 month period, the legislative body can take an issue back to the voters more than once if they believe that passage of the article is in the best interests of the town. 17 V.S.A Board doesn t have to put person on agenda. The open meeting law gives the public the right to be present and comment on the business of the local board. The board sets its own agenda and no citizen has the right to require the board to "put them on the agenda." That being said, most boards provide a general invitation to hear from the public at some point during the meeting at which time this citizen should have an opportunity to speak. 13. Appointments to fill vacancies can be discussed in executive session. The open meeting law permits a board to go into executive session to discuss "the appointment or employment or evaluation of a public officer or employee." 1 V.S.A. 313(3). This would include discussing possible appointments to fill vacancies in town office. Office of the Vermont Secretary of State 5
