In addition to voting on state-wide and Federal offices in November, Vermonters will be faced with a Constitutional amendment question. We discuss Proposal 5, the amendment that would allow 17-year-olds to vote in a primary election if they turn 18 by the following general election. Windham County Senator Jeanette White, who sponsored the amendment, and Vermont Municipal Clerks' and Treasurers' Association President Alison Kaiser, whose group opposes it, are our guests.

Plus, an ongoing project to identify and catalog every item in the collection at the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site has revealed some interesting artifacts, including a tablecloth that may have been on the table when Coolidge was sworn in as president.  We take a tour of the collection with historian and collections manager Amy Mincher.
