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!”
…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 7 pm. 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.
