Due to the ongoing public health pandemic related to COVID-19, the Town Council presented an Emergency Election Plan for discussion at the April 20, 2020 and May 11, 2020 Town Council Meetings. The Emergency Election Plan was endorsed by the Town’s Board of Supervisors of Elections on May 13, 2020. The Emergency Election Plan outlines a vote-by-mail method for the 2020 Town Election, which would mail a ballot to every registered voter within the Town. Completed ballots may be returned to the provided PO Box, or ballots may be placed within a secure drop box at Town Hall by 9:00 pm, on Monday, June 1, 2020. All completed ballots mailed to the PO Box must be received by the Board of Supervisors of Elections by 9:00 pm, on Monday, June 1, 2020.
Each registered voter within the Town of Kensington will receive a 2020 Election packet, which will include the ballot and corresponding documents. We encourage everyone to carefully read the Election Instructions, which will be included within the packet, prior to completing the ballot.
On May 23, 2020 the town held a virtual candidate forum via the Zoom videoconferencing application. First they held the Mayoral Candidate Forum where residents heard from Tracey Furman (Incumbent) and Pete Fosselman (Former Mayor).
After the Mayoral Forum they had a Forum featuring the candidates for Town Council; Bridget Hill-Zayat (Incumbent), Nate Engle and Jon A. Gerson.
