A Dartmouth Government Change Referendum non-binding question was on the April 6, 2010 ballot at the Dartmouth town meeting in Bristol County.

Residents chose to keep the current form of government.

  • YES 2,416 Approveda
  • NO 1,800[1]

This non-binding referendum asked town residents if they wanted to abolish the representative town meeting format and instead choose to have a mayor or town manager that would manage town issues. Several options were given on the ballot for a government change, in the hopes that the select board would have a better idea of what residents wanted. If residents do want to get rid of town meetings, a charter commission would have to be elected to officially disband the meetings.[2]
