The independent candidates for Vermont governor say they are frustrated and feel that voters are forgetting they exist.

On Tuesday, Vermont will hold its earliest ever state primary.  It’s an unusual year in that all seats in the House and Senate are up for election, although not all face primaries.  The top five elected offices in the state will also be chosen in the general election in November. In the race to replace retiring Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin, five candidates have lined up in the Democratic primary.
