Montpelier, VT — Today Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos issued a reminder that all Vermont voters will be mailed a ballot for the November 8 General Election, and encouraged voters to update or confirm their voter registration information by August 31.
“Here in Vermont, and in red and blue states across the country, universal ballot mailing has proven to be a secure and effective way of increasing options for Vermont voters,” said Condos. “Whether you plan to vote early in-person, by mail, or at the polls on Election Day, ensuring your voter registration information is up to date will prevent any delays in receiving the ballot that is mailed to you.”
Voters are encouraged to confirm or update their voter registration information, including mailing address, using their MyVoterPage at https://mvp.vermont.gov or by contacting their Town Clerk.
The 2022 General Election will mark the first universal general election ballot mailing under Act 60, which received tri-partisan support by the Legislature.
“I want to thank the Vermont legislators who worked with us to create a universal ballot mailing process that works for Vermont,” said Condos, who oversaw the mailing of ballots to all Vermont voters for the 2020 General Election in response to COVID-19. “Vermont is proof that when you remove barriers to voting for eligible voters, they do.”
In the last decade Vermont has enacted a number of important voter access laws, making it one of the most ‘voter-friendly’ states in the country.
Vermont was ranked as 1st in the nation for election administration in 2020 and 2016 by MIT’s Election Performance Index, a highly regarded, data-driven measure of a state’s election administration performance.
