Dear Burlington voters:

If you are planning to show up at the polls next Tuesday, fill in a few bubbles, and then jet, you might want to budget a little more time. This year's Town Meeting Day ballot is 1,300 words long. In addition to picking your mayor, city councilors, school board members and inspectors of elections, you’ll be asked to answer eight questions. And chances are you haven’t heard about half of them. For your convenience, Seven Days has annotated a sample ballot with some pointers.

Let your mouse hover over the ballot to see stars. Click on them and you'll get explanations of the questions — and links to our Town Meeting Day stories.
