How to register | Voter registration deadline | ID and other requirements | Absentee and early voting
Not sure what you’re registering for? Here’s an explainer on U.S. elections.
Deadline for 2018 midterms: October 31, 2018
Only first-time voters who registered by mail have to show ID to vote. (If that’s true for you, you can bring a photo ID, a utility bill, bank statement, or a government document.)
If you don’t have an ID, you’re allowed to go to the polls and request what’s called a “provisional ballot,” which means you promise to show ID at a later date (or else your vote won’t count).
There’s no length-of-residency requirement to vote in Vermont.
You can vote early starting 45 days before the election, which we think is extremely excellent.
Go to your county clerk’s office starting 45 days before the election.
Apply for an absentee ballot from your county clerk.
Your mailed ballot has to arrive by the time the polls close on Election Day.
Military/overseas voters can also get a ballot through the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
