Castleton University students and Spartan reporters will be representing our school at the polls this Election Day as a part of a collaborative “Community News” initiative with the University of Vermont.
Adrianna Maher, Sophia Buckley-Clement, Spartan editor Ryan Boeke, Marty Kelly, Hunter Smith, Jana DeCamilla, Brooke Rubright and Lily Doton will be at polling sites around Vermont and will be reporting on updates regarding the election and talking to voters.
They are primarily asking Vermonters why they are showing up at the polls when ballots were mailed to all residents this year.
Their work will land on communitynews.net, a project started by University of Vermont to give students around Vermont the opportunity to write stories for local newspapers. Our students’ work will also be featured in the Rutland Herald.
The site has a specific section where you can find live election day coverage.
Adrianna Maher will be reporting from the Orchard School in South Burlington. Lily Doton and Sophia Buckley-Clement will be around different sites in Rutland. Hunter Smith, Ryan Boeke, and Jana DeCamilla will be around Fair Haven and Castleton. Marty Kelly will be at the River Street Firehouse in Bennington and Brooke Rubright is in Salisbury.
