Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos has issued a message to Vermont voters reminding them of their safe voting options for the November 3 General Election: “vote your ballot!”
“However you plan to vote, whether by bringing your voted early ballot to your Town Clerk before Tuesday, or by voting at the polls on Election Day, vote your ballot!” said Condos. “Our democracy is stronger when we all participate.
The Town Clerk must receive the voter’s voted ballot by 7pm on Tuesday, November 3 for it to be counted.
Voters can bring their ballot or vote early at the Town Clerk’s office any day they are open before Election Day, during normal business hours. Many Town Clerk offices have secure ballot drop boxes that ballots can be deposited in. A listing of ballot drop box locations can be found at the Secretary of State’s website.
Ballot drop off and in-person voting is also available at the polls on Election Day until the polls close at 7pm. Voters dropping off their ballot on Election Day need to bring it to the polling place, not to the Town Clerk’s office or drop box.
“Bring a mask, bring the ballot you were mailed, and bring a black pen if you’re voting at the polls,” said Secretary Condos. “If you don’t have any of these, that’s ok! The election workers have extra and can provide you with whatever you’re missing. The most important thing to bring to the polls to vote is yourself!”
