Town voters elected Francis "Frank" Saunders Jr. of Barber's Pond Road and Ron Bisson of North Pownal to one-year terms last year; the two are seeking reelection as the incumbents.

Voting is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Pownal Valley Volunteer Fire Department fire house of of Route 7.

There are no contests affecting officers of the Pownal Elementary School. Those seeking a return to office are Timothy Holbrook, one year term as moderator of the annual school meeting. Cindy Brownell, three-year term as a school director, and Gudrun Hutchins and Angie Rawlings, one-year terms as school directors.

There is a contest for election as a representative to the Mount Anthony Union School District board. Lance Matteson of Main Road is challenging Stephen Counter of Route 7.
