Registered voters are welcome to vote anytime in the next two weeks by requesting an early or absentee ballot.

"Many Vermonters have already utilized early voting," states Secretary Condos. "This election, 14,489 voters have requested an absentee ballot and 6,850 of those have been returned. These numbers exemplify how beneficial early voting programs are for ensuring busy Vermonters get their voices heard in the election."

Voter registration applications must be submitted or postmarked no later than 5:00pm on August 3rd.

Absentee ballots must be requested by August 8th and returned to your Town/City Clerk by 7:00PM on August 9th.

Remember, your VOTE is your VOICE!
