Voting Information:

Last year, Secretary of State Jim Condos announced the launch of VT’s new Elections Management Platform.  This streamlined the elections administration process, providing voters with greater access to voter specific information.  Over 25,000 Vermonters registered to vote online in 2016.  For the November General Election, nearly 6,500 Vermonters requested an absentee ballot through the My Voter Page. 

By using the My Voter Page, a registered voter can:

  • Check registration status;
  • View information on upcoming elections;
  • Access voter specific elections information, including directions to a polling place and polling hours;
  • View a sample ballot;
  • Request and track an absentee ballot;
  • We encourage voters to log into their My Voter Page to learn more.
