Secretary of State Reminds Vermonters of Early Voting for Town Meeting Day

Secretary of State Jim Condos would like to remind all eligible, Vermont voters that early voting is now open for Town Meeting Day. Early voting only applies to those towns that vote by Australian ballot.

"Town Meeting Day can be a great opportunity for community members to come together, discuss the issues that are specific to their particular locality, and have important debates before voting. However, many Vermonters have the realities of busy lives to contend with and the flexibility of Early Voting allows these Vermonters to still exercise their constitutional right to vote and, in this way, still participate in local decision making," stated Secretary Condos.

Condos added, "Many of Vermont's most important issues are decided on a local level and often the outcome comes down to a very small number of votes. I urge Vermonters to make their voice heard: vote on Town Meeting Day or, for Towns that use Australian ballot, vote early if you so choose."

For voters who would like to learn more about early voting they can visit the Secretary of State's website at: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/elections/voters/absentee-voting.aspx

The deadline to request an early ballot is Monday, March 2nd.

For Vermonters looking to register to vote before Town Meeting Day, they can find information on eligibility requirements and the registration process on the Secretary of State's website at: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/elections/voters/registration.aspx

The deadline to register to vote for Town Meeting Day is 5pm on Wednesday, February 25th.
