VT Edition: Moving The Primary Date

Print More

Vermont’s primary election date is one of the latest in the country, and lawmakers in Montpelier are debating whether or not to move it earlier. Those in favor of the change, say it puts Vermont in line with new federal election rules, but those against it say the change is motivated by politics. Last session, the Senate passed a bill authorizing an earlier primary date, and this year, it’s the House’s turn to debate the bill.

VPR’s Jane Lindholm talks with two members of the House Government Operations committee, Rep. Donna Sweaney, and Rep. Pat McDonald about the issue.
