Hi folks! I am getting questions about voting in the General Election. So, I have checked with the Secretary of State’s office and also with my local Town Clerk Laurie in Georgia.
Here’s the scoop:
The General Election is scheduled for Tuesday November 8th. Most communities with have voting start at 7 am, and some start at 10 am. All polls in Vermont close at 7 pm.
You must be registered to vote in Vermont to vote in the General Election. Being registered in another state is not permitted, even if you own property in Vermont. You can register when you renew your driver’s license, or by stopping in at your local Town Clerk’s office.
Absentee Ballots for the General Election can be requested at any time up until November 7th, the day before the election. The Town Clerk will keep the requests until she receives ballots from the Secretary of State and then will mail you a ballot.
State law says the Secretary of State has to make sure the ballots are in each Town Clerk’s office no later than 45 days before the election. This year that means September 24th.
I want to hear from you. Let me know if you have any further questions or contact your local Town Clerk. Contact Me!
