Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Vermont if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of Vermont
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
  • Take, or have previously taken, the Voter's Oath
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the federal voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You will have the following identification options when completing the form:
  • U.S. State or Territory or District Issued ID
  • Option to Indicate that you do not have the Requested ID
  • Last 4 Digits of your Social Security Number
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

The right to vote is never taken away from individuals convicted of a felony, even while incarcerated.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Vermont before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Vermont voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Vermont address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in Vermont have the explicit right to choose to vote in their school communities if they are genuine residents of those communities. While Vermont law requires an intent to remain “indefinitely,” Vermont courts have made clear that students can fulfill that requirement even if they have uncertain post-college plans, so establishing residency in Vermont as a student should not be a problem.

Will I need ID?

To register to vote in Vermont you should provide one of the following:
  • The Last Four Digits of your Social Security Number
  • Your Vermont Driver's License Number
  • Valid Pilot's ID
  • Your Vermont ID Number
If you are registering to vote for the first time by mail, you will need to provide a copy of a valid ID. Acceptable forms of ID include:
  • Valid Driver's License except one issued to an individual that is not a United States citizen
  • Utility Bill, Bank Statement or other Government Document
  • Valid US Passport
If you registered to vote in Vermont, you may be required to present valid ID if you are voting for the first time or your registration is incomplete. You can use any ID from this list:
  • Valid Vermont Driver's License
  • Other Government Document
  • Utility Bill
  • Bank Statement
