A provisional ballot is only used if a person trying to vote at the polling place is not on the checklist and cannot affirm they registered to vote by the deadline.

Provisional ballots are eligible if they are cast in the correct jurisdiction.

Polling places must allow all voters to conveniently and privately cast their votes. This means that polling places should be accessible to all voters, including people with physical and mental disabilities, as well as the elderly. All polling places in Vermont should be physically accessible. If you find a polling place that is not, you should notify the secretary of state's office, who will work with the town to ensure that steps are taken to make it accessible.


All polls are open from 10am to 7pm. Most polls open earlier.


Time off to vote is subject to the employer. Vermont state law does not require employers to grant time off to vote for employees.


First-time voters that registered by mail and did not provide verification are required to show identification at the polls.


If you are registering for the first time by mail, you must include a photocopy of an acceptable form of ID. These include:

  • A valid photo ID (driver's license or passport)
  • A copy of a current utility bill
  • A copy of a current bank statement
  • A copy of another government document

If you are registering for the first time in Vermont you must take the Voter's Oath. The Vermont voter registration form contains the voter's oath that must be taken.


To be eligible to vote in Vermont you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen
  • A resident of Vermont
  • A person who has taken the Voter's Oath (formerly called the Freeman's Oath)
  • 18 years of age or older on or before Election Day
