Secretary of State Jim Condos Announces
VT’s Early Voting for the State Primary Begins Friday June 24
Montpelier – Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos announces that early voting will officially open on Friday, June 24th.
Beginning on Friday, any registered voter will be able to request a ballot from their town clerk by phone, mail, or online and cast their vote for the August 9th election. The elections staff has already finalized and sent out the ballots to town clerks and some towns may even open their early voting before Friday.
“Vermont’s early voting system is one of the many ways our office ensures voting is accessible to eligible Vermont voters,” states Secretary Condos. “We recognize that many Vermonters have busy schedules and may not be able to take time away from work or their families to vote on August 9th. Early voting ensures these people are not left out of the democratic process by giving them more opportunities to cast their vote.”
Those who would like to request a ballot and vote early can contact their local town clerk or visit the Secretary of State’s website at: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/elections/voters/absentee-voting.aspx.
Ballots are available at your City/Town Clerks beginning no later than Friday, June 24th until the close of their town clerk’s office the day before the election. Ballots must be completed and returned to the appropriate town clerk by the close of polls on August 9th.
Keep in mind, only registered voters can request a ballot. For voters who are not yet registered, they can go online to complete their registration: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/elections/voters/registration.aspx.
Voters must register by August 3rd to be eligible to vote in the August 9th primary.
“Voting is a constitutional right and I am proud that our early voting system makes this right more accessible. Whether you vote early or at the polls on August 9th, I strongly encourage all Vermonters to get out and exercise their right vote.”
