Early Voting Begins and Other Important General Election Dates

On Friday, Absentee and Early Voting began for the General Election. From now until 5pm or the close of the town clerk’s office on the day before the election, which, for the General Election is Monday, November 3rd, any registered voter may request a ballot from their town clerk, whether in person, by phone or by mail.

Secretary of State Jim Condos urges any Vermonters who think they may be away on November 4rd or have a schedule conflict to take advantage of Vermont’s early voting law: “Vermont law recognizes how busy its citizens are and that, while some will be able to take time off from work and personal obligations to vote on Election Day, others will not. However, voting is a right that belongs to all of Vermont’s citizens, which is why, if you cannot make it to the polls, I strongly encourage you to exercise your constitutional right and vote early!”

For any Vermonter who has yet to register to vote or whose address has changed since the Primary Election, Secretary Condos would like to remind them that the Voter Registration deadline is 5pm on Wednesday, October 29th.

General Election:

The 2014 General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 4th 2014. All polls in Vermont open between 5 and 10 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. To locate your polling place, please visit the Secretary of State’s website at: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/elections/voters.aspx.

”As always, I urge all Vermonters to remember to take the opportunity to vote, - by early ballot or at the polls on November 4th. Your Vote is your Voice!” added Condos.
