The Vermont Secretary of State’s Office maintains a ‘live’ elections returns page on Election Night. Barring technical problems, it’s the most up-to-date way to stay on top of statewide and local election returns.
Vermont Daily Chronicle will be posting updates via Facebook until late until the night. The Sec State’s Vermont Election Night Results page will be a key source of information.
But if you want to check for yourself, click this link. Then select from the menu at the top the type of race you’re following: Federal (Congress, Senate), Statewide (Governor, Lt. Governor, Treasurer, Attorney General, Secretary of State), Senate, House, or County. Then go to the column at the right hand side and click on the race.
You may need to be patient. While some election results are reported almost immediately, others take hours, and occasionally even days before the final tally is known. The delay usually has to do with either the counting of paper ballots rejected by the voting machine, or problems communicating the election results to the Secretary of State.
Throughout the day, readers are invited to email photos and election day thoughts and observations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
