Two ballot articles, approved on Town Meeting Day, require that South Hero adopt and amend town plans by Australian ballot, and to adopt, amend and repeal bylaws. In recent years, those decisions have been made by the town Selectboard.

The articles passed 339-262 and 335-264, respectively, and were put on the ballot through a petition signed by 150 South Hero residents, about 10% of the town’s registered voters.
