Welcome to Newfane, Vermont

A Message from the Town Clerk about the November 3 Election:
Voting will be at the Newbrook Fire Station from 9 am until 7 pm. It is easier if you bring the mail-in ballot you received in the mail with you. You could fill it out at home (or not, up to you), come into the fire station, give the entrance checklist your name, show them you have your ballot, and just go to the exit checklist, check out and put your ballot in the tabulator. If you do not bring the ballot you will have to sign an Affidavit that you have not already voted before we can give you another ballot.

Second Payment for 2020 Property Taxes are due by 10/15/2020.

The Town of Newfane condemns hate speech, prejudice, and acts intended to induce fear in any person based on their identity. We are a community of diverse backgrounds and opinions, and we draw strength from it. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and feel safe in our beautiful town.
