In Vermont towns that allow it, few noncitizens have registered to vote.

Two weeks before Town Meeting Day, just eight noncitizen voters had registered in Winooski. Despite the city’s outreach efforts, proponents of all-resident voting say that cultural, technological and linguistic divides have kept turnout low. “Some people have a lot of trauma and fear from back home,” said Tul Niroula, one of eight multilingual liaisons who work with New American families in the school district. “They’re skeptical. We can’t just tell them to go out and vote.” Chelsea Edgar, Seven Days.
