Town Meeting Day 2011 Live Blog 

UPDATE (3/1 at 9:45 p.m.): Thanks for joining us for tonight's live blog and chat. We had as many as 50 people following along as results and updates from around the state came in. Thanks, too, to our friends at Channel 17 for their coverage. [Ed. clarification: That's "50 people at a time" -- nearly 500 people tuned in overall, and the average length of their stay was 40 minutes.]

For election results in Burlington, Winooski, South Burlington, Colchester, and Williston, check out Channel 17's results page.

We took a few highly unscientific polls of the live blog viewers, and here are those results. 92 percent of you voted on Town Meeting Day. 67 percent of viewers said turnout at their meeting/polling place was low, while 33 percent said it was steady. No one said they thought turnout was "very strong." And 71 percent said they didn't think Burlington election results were a referendum on Mayor Bob Kiss and his administration — perhaps because only 17 percent of Burlington's registered voters turned out for Town Meeting Day.

Got any more thoughts on Town Meeting Day? Tell us in the comments, or tweet about them using the hashtag #tmdvt.
