News & Updates

 Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos has announced the roll-out of the new Elections Management Platform. This platform has three main parts:

Elections Management System (EMS) – includes a new statewide voter checklist and other resources and tools to be used by town and city clerks across Vermont to conduct all of their election related business – from registering voters, to processing absentee ballot requests, to entering election results;

New Online Voter Registration Tool – allows all eligible Vermonters to submit their voter registration application online anytime and anywhere they can access the internet; and

New "My Voter Page" – online resource that allows every registered voter to login and have access to a unique, voter-specific web page where they can request an absentee ballot, track its status, update their voter registration record, find their polling place, view a sample ballot, and much more.

Secretary Condos states, "I am very excited to announce the roll-out of Vermont’s first online voter registration system. One of my primary goals as Vermont’s chief election officer is to increase voter participation. I am confident that our new online voter registration system and the ‘My Voter Page’ tool will increase engagement with the electoral process across the state and make it easier than ever for all eligible Vermonters to participate in our elections."

Absentee Voting


If you expect to be out of town for an election you may vote early at the Town Clerk's office at Town Hall (781 Blakely Road) 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM, until closing on the day before the election or request by phone (802-264-5520) that a ballot be mailed to you. Or use the 'My Voter Page' link at left to log into your personal voting page and request an absentee ballot to be sent to you via US mail.  Be sure to allow enough time for mail transit; the clerks are not responsible for delayed or misdirected mail. An authorized person (such as a spouse) may apply for an early voter / absentee ballot on behalf of such a voter, as well.
