To place an article on an upcoming Special Town Meeting Warrant, the signatures of one hundred (100) registered voters of the Town are required, but otherwise follows the procedures above.
Voters may petition the Selectmen to call a Special Town Meeting and to insert in the Warrant all subjects specified in the petition. This requires the signatures of two hundred (200) registered voters of the Town, but otherwise follows the procedures above.
