Voter Information


Your voice matters and our 2020 elections are our path forward. Voting looks a bit different this year due to COVID-19, but Vermont will work to make sure every vote is counted. We are fortunate to be in a state that promotes election accessibility in so many ways. Our Secretary of State Office is committed to safe and accessible elections.

The first step you can take to be ready for the 2020 elections is to make sure you are registered to vote. Visit the link below to get registered or check your registration status.



EIGHT Tips to Make Your General Election Vote Count

  1. The official date of the Vermont 2020 General Election is November 3rd, however voting actually starts as early as September 18th with ballots being available at the Town Clerk's Office. (This is the SAMPLE Ballot for Essex Junction, Chittenden 8-2).   

  2. The Vermont Secretary of State is mailing all active, registered voters General Election ballots in late September. Everyone should receive a ballot by October 1st. If you didn't receive a ballot by this date, and want to vote by mail you can contact the Town Clerk's Office to have one mailed to you.

  3. Ballots can be returned by mail or dropped off at the Town Clerk’s Office. In Essex Junction, our Town Clerk’s Office is located at 81 Main Street and there is a drop box for submitting ballots at any time.

  4. Please follow the mail-in ballot directions and remember to sign the envelope so your vote counts!
