Vermont Voting Guide

UPDATE: In response to COVID-19, mail-in ballots will be automatically sent to all registered voters for the 2020 general election.

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.

Am I eligible to vote in Vermont?

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

  • Are a citizen of the United States of America
  • Are a resident of the state of Vermont
  • Have taken the Voter's Oath
  • Are at least 18 years of age, or will be 18 by Election Day

It is worth noting that Vermont is one of a few states that allows felons to vote, even if they are current serving out a sentence in prison. Felons simply have to register with their last residential address to be added to the voter list.


Where Do I Vote?

If you chose to cast your ballot in person, you can locate your local polling place on the Vermont Secretary of State website.
