Town Meeting happens the Saturday after the Ballot voting, and it is there that elected officers are sworn in, the Budget is presented, and Warrant Articles are discussed and voted upon. (The budget is discussed in detail at a Budget Deliberative Session, which happens a few weeks prior to Town Meeting.)
