All active registered voters will receive a ballot by mail between September 21 and October 1. No Vermonter should have to choose between their health and their constitutional right to vote. As long as COVID-19 still poses a risk to our communities, we should allow Vermont voters the option of voting from the safety of their own homes. If you prefer to vote in person, polling places will still be open. Make a voting plan. Whether you vote by mail or in person is up to you, but we encourage you to vote by mail and vote early – by October 24th - to reduce contact at polling places and to ensure clerks and postal workers have ample time to deliver and process your ballot.
We encourage you to vote early and vote at home, but in-person voting is available, subject to the polling place safety guidelines we developed with the Vermont Department of Health, following CDC best practices.
