Return mail-in ballots properly

Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos is encouraging all Vermont voters to ensure that they exercise their right to vote in the upcoming Aug. 11 statewide primary elections. For those voters who have requested early/absentee ballots, Secretary Condos recommends the voter follow all instructions to properly vote their ballot, and return it to the Clerk in time to be counted on Aug. 11.

Secretary Condos has issued the following guidance to voters who are voting by mail in the August primaries.

“Your ballot must be returned to your town clerk, not to my office or anywhere else. You can mail your ballot or deliver it to the town clerk’s office in person. If you are mailing or bringing back your ballot to the Clerk, they need to receive it by close of regular business hours on Monday, Aug. 10, the day before the Election. We cannot predict how long the mail will take for you, so our best estimate is to leave yourself at least a week to mail your ballot back to the clerk, however, the more time, the better.

“You can also bring your ballot to the polling place by 7 p.m. on Election Day. All polls will be open for business, but we hope that in-person traffic will be low so that social distancing measures can be followed for those who do vote in person.”
