Voting At The Polls On Election Day

Am I required to show identification when I vote?

  • No. In Vermont, only first time voters who have registered by mail have to show ID in order to vote. If you registered when you renewed your driver’s license, or as part of a voter registration drive, you will not be required to show ID.

What happens if I show up to vote and my name is not on the checklist even though I registered before the deadline?

  • If for any reason your name is not on the voter registration list when you arrive at the polls, you will be asked to sign a sworn statement indicating that you reside in the town and filed an application to register prior to the deadline (5 p.m. on the Wednesday preceding the date of the election). Your name will be added to the checklist and you will be allowed to vote.
  • If you did not submit an application to register before the deadline, you may not vote.
