Thursday October 11, 2018

 Here’s how to do it:


• Go online to the Secretary of State’s website and register on-line at https://olvr.sec.state.vt.us/

• OR stop by the South Burlington Clerk’s Office to fill out an application

• OR call the office to have the application mailed

• OR visit the Vermont Secretary of State Office’s website to download the application  http://vermont-elections.org/elections1/registertovote.html and return the registration form to the Clerk’s Office.

• Plus: Voters are automatically put on South Burlington’s voter list when they visit DMV unless they opt out of the automatic enrollment

Election Day Voter Registration is available for all elections in the city.  However, in order to make Election Day less stressful, it is recommended that residents verify their voting status in the city prior to Election Day.

No matter how voters register, they should receive confirmation in the mail from the clerk’s office once their application is processed. If voters do not receive confirmation within two weeks of registering, please call the clerk’s office at 846-4105.

Every voter has the ability to review their voter information by going to My Voter Page at https://mvp.sec.state.vt.us/.  You can check your voter status, request an absentee ballot, check on status of absentee ballot, locate your polling location, find your election officials and more.

Absentee Ballot (or Early Voting) Information:

Absentee ballots for annual meetings are available at least 20 days prior to the election.

Absentee ballots for state primary (August) and general (November) elections are available 45 days prior to the election.  However, if the City is having a special election in August or November those ballots may not be ready until somewhere between 20 -30 days prior to the election due to state laws.

Absentee ballots for military and citizens who live out of the country, there is a special absentee ballot request form.  The federal voting laws have changed and ballots will be ready 45 days prior to the election for absentee voting for federal elections only.  For local elections absentees are generally available 20 -30 days prior to the election day.  The absentee ballot request form is good for only 1 year.  

Go to the My Voter Page at https://mvp.sec.state.vt.us to request an absentee ballot by election or all elections in the current year.
The City of South Burlington does allow absentee voting in the city clerk’s office prior to the election and those ballots are co-mingled with absentee ballots received through the mail and processed on election day at the polls.

The General Election is Nov. 6, 2018 — Election of Governor, Lt. Governor and all state political offices along with South Burlington representatives and senators, AND the special city election.
