Voter Registration in Vermont
Vermont takes the democratic process seriously, and encourages residents to register to vote by making the process easy and painless.
At the DMV
The DMV's Application for License/Permit (Form VL021) also doubles as a voter registration form. Since most Vermont residents pass through the DMV's doors at some point to apply for a driver's license―and they all show proof of identity at the same time―it's a perfect marriage to have both applications on one form.
Before completing the application, make sure you can prove you are 18 years old or older (or will be by the date of the general election), a Vermont resident, and a U.S. citizen. To do this, you will need to provide one form each of primary and secondary identification.
After completing the application, you will be required to take Vermont's Voter's Oath―a quick, one-time process. Your application will then be reviewed by your town or city clerk. You'll be notified within a few days if your voter application was approved.
With Your Town or City Clerk
If you want to make your voice count, your application must be submitted by 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before an upcoming election to either your town clerk or to your local DMV office. If you have any voting questions, call the Secretary of State Division of Elections at (800) 439-8683.Other Topics in This SectionTrue or False
