NEW LONDON — At the polls on Tuesday, Janet R. Kidder beat out Emma Phipps for a three-year term on the Selectboard, 667 to 335.

Voters also chose three people for the Budget Committee: John Tilley, 574 votes; Megan Brown, 543; and Karen Epstein, 492. They beat out Peter Bianchi, 468; Bob Lyon, 382; and Travis Sniffen, 270.

Voters also rejected four of six zoning amendments on the warrant on Tuesday, including articles that would have allowed cluster developments and small-scale planned unit developments, and added short-term rentals to the definition of lodging house.

The two zoning amendments that passed related to streamlining setbacks for certain properties and ensuring compliance with the National Flood Insurance Program.

The floor portion of Town Meeting was scheduled for Wednesday night.
