Secretary Condos: Verify or update voter registration information by Aug. 31

Montpelier, VT – Today Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos encouraged voters to verify or update their voter registration information by this Wednesday, August 31 to prevent any possible delays with the mailing of their November 8 General Election ballot. Ballots will be mailed to all Vermont voters.

“However you choose to vote, whether early by mail, in-person at the Town Clerk’s office, by dropping your ballot off at a secure ballot drop box, or at the poll on Election Day, the first step is ensuring that your voter record is up to date to prevent any delays with us sending you a ballot,” said Condos. “We have worked hard to increase voter options and access; you can help by making sure all of your voter information is current.”

Voters can verify or update their voter registration information, including address and mailing address, online at https://mvp.vermont.gov or directly with their Town or City Clerk.

All Vermont voters will be mailed a ballot for the 2022 General Election, which is held on November 8. Voters are not required to vote early, or by mail, and may choose to vote in person at their Clerk’s office or at the polls on Election Day. All polling locations will be open as usual on Election Day.

The Vermont voter checklist is regularly updated by the Town and City Clerks. Advancements like online and automatic voter registration further provide updates. However, voters are still encouraged to check and verify or update their voter information to prevent any possible delays with the delivery of their General Election ballot.

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.
