According to the latest VPR Poll, Vermonters have been following the races for president and governor very closely. But the rest of the Vermont races, not so much. It's OK — that's where we come in.

The Eye On The Night Sky podcast has moved: make sure you update your podcast subscriptions so you don't miss an episode.

Who leads the race for president and the key statewide offices in Vermont? What are the top issues on voters' minds and how much do they trust some of Vermont's institutions? VPR has once again partnered with The Castleton Polling Institute to ask Vermonters what you think about the big issues facing our state and the choices voters face on Nov. 8.

As a VPR listener, you're probably aware that we've been working hard for the past several years to stay ahead of rapid changes in the radio landscape.

Our goal is to continue to provide the news, music and programming you want and in the way that you want it, so I'm inviting you to share your feedback about technology in our eighth annual Public Radio Tech Survey conducted with Jacobs Media.

What do Vermonters think about the coming election? What about renewable energy? Guns? Marijuana? School consolidation? The VPR Poll has some answers.

When Tropical Storm Irene raged through Vermont it shattered homes and businesses, roads and bridges. 1,400 households were displaced.  Many people were left with nothing, except the muddied remnants of their belongings. Some lost their homes and their jobs. The storm had eroded the foundations of many people’s lives. But others reached out to help.
