BUCKLAND — Nomination papers are available at Town Clerk Janice Purington’s office for those interested in running for election. Those who wish to run for a town office have until March 13 to get their nomination papers, which must be returned with town voters’ signatures by 5 p.m. on March 17 in the Town Hall.
