Town Meeting Members
Every year, Belmont holds a Local Election in which Town-wide offices as well as twelve Representative Town Meeting Members from each of our eight voting precincts are elected. The elected term for Town Meeting Member is three years; however, should a resignation occur, there may be openings for one, or two year periods.

Annual Town Meeting takes place in the spring, and typically lasts for six evenings, customarily Mondays and Wednesdays starting in the first week in May. For specific information about Town Meeting, click here.
Town Meeting makes all of the decisions about the Town’s budgets and local Bylaws. Belmont’s government is a Representative Town Meeting, which means that only Town Meeting Members can vote at Town Meeting, unlike the Open Town Meeting form of government. That’s why it’s very important that all the Town Meeting seats are filled to have full representation of each Belmont neighborhood.
