Once you have completed the ballot and placed it in the signed certificate envelope, you may either

- bring it to the town office in person. We will have a drop box inside on the counter to minimize contact. Please wear a mask to enter the building. If you have concerns about entering the building, please call the Town Clerk.
If you decide to come to the polls on November 3rd, bring your ballot with you and return it to be counted. All ballots must be received by November 3rd at 7:00 pm in order to be counted.

VOTER REGISTRATION and EARLY/ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUESTS
We encourage all voters to visit their My Voter Page to update their registration address, including their physical AND mailing addresses, and request an absentee ballot to be mailed to them, if you have not already done so. The My Voter Page is now found at https://mvp.vermont.gov. If you encounter problems logging into your My Voter Page, please contact the Town Clerk’s office at 802-254-6857 for assistance. People can also register to vote using the online voter registration page at https://olvr.vermont.gov. Note that both of these links have been updated.
Vermont has same day voter registration, however to save time on Election Day is it advisable to register in advance to vote by contacting the Town Clerk’s Office or online at https://olvr.vermont.gov/ .
If you are already registered to vote in the town you live in, you do not need to register again. To verify your registration, or change your address within the town, contact your town clerk or go online to https://www.mvp.vermont.gov/
