Vermont voters are ready to give governors and other statewide officials four-year terms, according to a poll conducted by the Snelling Center for Government. Vermont and New Hampshire represent the last remnants of the once-common two-year term tradition.
The scientific surveys showed support for longer terms for governor and the other statewide offices, such as attorney general or secretary of state, to increase from 53 percent in 2006 to 59 percent last year.
Ah, but our poor friends in the legislature. Vermont voters aren't talking about term limits, but they are dubious about extending the current two-year terms of legislators.
Scientific polling had Vermonters split on four-year terms for senators - 49.5 percent for and 46.8 percent against. There was a stronger reaction for the House side: 44 percent for and 53 percent against.
