Hi Vermont, if you want to vote in the  2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If  you have a Vermont ID or driver's license,   you can register online.

If not, you’ll need to  print out an application form and mail it in.   Links to both are at  There’s no deadline to register, but Vermont   recommends leaving a week or two to get your  ballot mailed to you after you register.   If it’s close to election day, you can still  register in person at your town clerk’s office   or polling place through November 8th. To register in Vermont, you also need to   take a voter’s oath. A town clerk or any adult  Vermont resident can administer the oath to you,   or you can administer it to yourself by reading it  out loud and signing your voter registration form   to affirm that you’ll vote your conscience  and make your own voting decisions.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   Vermont makes it pretty easy for you.  For general elections like this one,   they’ll send all registered voters a ballot in  the mail.

You don’t even have to ask for it.   But if you need it sent somewhere other than your  home address, like if you are going to be out of   town or go to school in another state, update  your voter registration to let them know before   ballots get mailed in late September. You can either mail your ballot back or   drop it off at your town clerk’s  office by November 8th.   But if you’d prefer to vote in person or  need to register and vote on the same day,   you can visit to find a  town clerk’s office or a polling location near   you. They’re open from September 24th to November  8th.

Polling places open at different times,   so use the link to confirm when yours opens,  but they all close by 7pm on November 8th.   If you need to register in person, be sure to  bring an ID like a drivers license, state ID,   passport, or a utility bill, paycheck, or bank  statement with your name and address on it.   So once you have your plan for how you’re going to  register, and how and when you want to return your   ballot, you just need to follow the plan,  and vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that  you can vote for ahead of time,   you can find a sample ballot here so you  have time to research candidates and make   your decisions. You don’t have to vote  for everything for your ballot to count,   but this is your best chance to choose who  gets to make decisions about your life:   all the way from congress to your  city council or school board.   We’ve put all the links for everything you need  to register, vote in person, or track your mail   ballot at Thank you for voting!
