Balint wins

U.S. House candidate Becca Balint chats with Maxine Adams at Black Cap in Morrisville on Monday, a day before she won the Democratic nomination.

Tuesday’s primary election featured high voter turnout with plenty of high drama in highly contested races for all manner of high-level vacancies — in addition to two open seats in Congress, nearly every statewide officeholder not named Phil Scott stepped aside this year.

At the Lamoille County legislative level, though, there is no such thing as a losing candidate in the primary. That won’t be the case come Nov. 8 as voters will have a full slate of Democrat and Republican candidates to choose from. For local legislative hopefuls, the 2022 election essentially started Wednesday.
