Vermont

Step 1: Apply

Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


Yes, Vermont will automatically mail a ballot to every registered voter. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) https://mvp.vermont.gov/ New voters must register by November 3, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://sos.vermont.gov/media/vh1jv3oj/2019townclerkguide.pdf (scroll to page 4)





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be received by Election Day. (November 3, 2020) To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://sos.vermont.gov/media/vh1jv3oj/2019townclerkguide.pdf (scroll to page 4)




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


Call your local election office to find out the policy in your town or county. https://sos.vermont.gov/media/vh1jv3oj/2019townclerkguide.pdf (scroll to page 4)




Is there any way to check if my ballot was received?
