Am I eligible to vote in Vermont?

Vermont's election officials have specific requirements regarding voting and voter registration.

You are eligible to register to vote in Vermont if you:

  • Are a U.S. citizen
  • Are a resident of Vermont
  • Have taken the state’s Voter's Oath
  • Are at least 18 years old (or will be by Election Day)

Vermont is one of a few states that allow felons to vote, even if they are currently serving a sentence in prison. Felons need only register with their last residential address, and officials will add them to the list of eligible registered voters.

If you're uncertain of your voting status, you can check it on Vermont's voting website.



Where Do I Vote?

If you choose to cast your ballot in person, you can find your local polling place on the Vermont Secretary of State website. This site offers other valuable voting resources as well.
