Voter registration deadline is Wednesday

Secretary of State Jim Condos would like to remind all Vermonters that the deadline to register to vote in the August 9 Statewide Primary is Wednesday, August 3rd.


“Voting is the very basis of our democracy,” said Secretary Condos, “I encourage everyone to get out and participate in Vermont’s Primary on August 9th.”

Vermont has one of the most generous early voting periods in the nation, allowing you to vote in person at your town clerk’s office or by mail 45 days before an election. If you are not registered, the Secretary of State’s new elections management system makes it easier than ever to register to vote. Through your own personalized “MVP” or “My Voter Page” you can easily locate your polling place, view the ballots you will see on Election Day and request an early ballot.

Vermonters are also welcome to register in person at the town clerk’s office where they reside or by mail. If you register in person or by mail, you must complete this application:

To register online or visit your personalized “My Voter Page", go to our website: www.sec.state.vt.us

Voter registration applications must be submitted no later than 5:00pm on August 3rd.

Absentee ballots must be requested by August 8th and returned to your Town/City Clerk by 7:00PM on August 9th.

Secretary Condos added, “We understand that summers are short in Vermont and vacations are even shorter, so voting in August is not always convenient. Those who can’t make it to the polls on August 9th have plenty of options. With all of the new tools we have made available, registering and voting is more convenient than ever.”
