Vermont has made the election process easier and more accessible for its residents. The state offers same-day voter registration and universal mail-in voting, among other ways, for registered voters to participate in elections.
A democracy only works properly if its citizens participate. For many people, political participation takes the form of casting a ballot. Learn who can vote, where to vote, how to register, and more in this Vermont voting guide.
