The predominant group of voters at Town Meeting in Milford are those in their 40s and 50s, followed by seniors in their 60s and 70s, according a report this week in the Town Crier

To find the age brackets of those who attend Town Meeting, the Town Crier reviewed birth years of all elected Town Meeting Members eligible to attend last month's Special Town Meeting, the focus of which was on the Woodland School project that voters approved

The resulting data revealed two portraits of residents who vote on the town's municipal and school budgets, its savings and borrowings and its spending on capital projects, as well as the passage of its bylaws, according to the report. 

Moreover, the data revealed that in each decade, residents born in certain years volunteered more than those born in other years.
