Secretary of State Jim Condos is reminding Vermonters that the deadline to register to vote in the Tuesday, Aug.9 statewide primary is Wednesday, Aug. 3.

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

Vermont allows voters to vote in person at their home town clerk’s office or by mail 45 days before an election.  For those not registered, the Secretary of State’s new elections management system makes it easier to register to vote.  Through a personalized “My Voter Page,” voters can easily locate their polling place, view the ballots that they 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. Those who register in person or by mail  must complete this application:

Voter registration applications must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Absentee ballots must be requested by Monday Aug. 8 and returned to your Town/City Clerk by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

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.”
