The vote count numbers above don't accord with the outcome. You might want to edit them.

The library project (Article 1) won a majority vote (2430 to 1899), but did it need a 2/3 vote to succeed? I can't find an article that states the result authoritatively.

I'm pretty sure it only needs a 2/3 vote to clear Town Meeting and make it to the townwide ballot. From there I think a straight majority is all that's needed. I'll try to find something definitive as well.
