Voter Info

Any person may register to vote in the town of his or her residence who, on Election Day:

1. is a citizen of the United States;

2. is a resident of the state of Vermont (and a resident of the town in which you apply to be added to the checklist);

3. has taken, or has previously taken, the Voter’s Oath (formerly called the “Freeman’s Oath”); and

4. is 18 years of age or more.

Any person meeting the requirements above who will be 18 on or before the date of a general election may register and vote in the primary election immediately preceding that general election. See 17 V.S.A. § 2121.

For purposes of voter registration, the Vermont Statutes define residency as follows:

“Resident” shall mean a person who is domiciled in the town as evidenced by an intent to maintain a principal dwelling place in the town indefinitely and to return there if temporarily absent, coupled with an act or acts consistent with that intent. 17 V.S.A. § 2122(b).

View more information on the voter residency definition.

Eligible Vermonters may register to vote on any day up to and including the day of the election.
Registration is available during all normal business hours of your town or city clerk’s office on days preceding the election and during polling hours on Election Day. 17 V.S.A. § 2144.

You may also register to vote online, here.

When completing your application, you must include your Vermont driver’s license number on the form. If you do not have a Vermont driver’s license number or if your license is suspended, include the last four digits of your Social Security number. Be sure to take the Voter’s Oath if you have never voted in Vermont (the Oath can be self-administered and is contained on the online and paper applications). Once your application is completed, you must submit the form to the town or city clerk in the town or city in which you reside.

No. There is no party registration in Vermont.

All registered voters can vote in the primary election—but can only vote on one ballot. You will be given a ballot for each of the major parties. You mark one of the ballots and put the remaining unvoted ballots into a discard bin. Which ballot you chose to vote is private and not recorded (except during the presidential primary, where voters must publicly take one ballot or the other, and their choice is recorded on the entrance checklist).

The polling place for those residents who are eligible to vote for William is:

Rutland City – Rutland 5-4 – Ward 4
Calvary Bible Church
2 Meadow Ln, Rutland, VT 05701

If for any reason your name is not on the voter registration list when you arrive at the polls, you can simply fill out a registration form and vote that day. Vermont now has same day voter registration.
