Is no news good news?

While most Vermont government offices closed Tuesday for Town Meeting Day, the Secretary of State’s office in Montpelier stayed open to answer questions from local moderators and clerks.

The only problem: Few people were calling.

“This is the quietest we’ve ever, ever seen it,” Secretary of State Deborah Markowitz said at 4:30 p.m.

Which left her with one question: Is no news good news?
