41:16  Election and Bond.  Every town, except those towns that appoint a town clerk under RSA 41:16-d, at the annual meeting shall choose, by ballot, a town clerk, who shall record all votes passed by the town while he or she remains in office, and discharge all the duties of the office according to law.
