How to Register to Vote

In Vermont:

For comprehensive information, refer to the VT Secretary of State’s Voter’s page as well as the separate Register to Vote page. Each page links to a registration form you can print out.

Vermont Deadline: October 29, 2014 – Last day to register to vote for the general election.  August 20, 2014 – Last day to register for state-wide primary.


In another state:

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission allows you to download a National Mail Voter Registration Form (PDF) that is accepted in most states. Another alternative is Rock the Vote.

Alternatively (recommended), go to the website of the state agency that handles elections in your state.  Access state election websites from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.   Most states have in-depth information on their website about how to register, the deadlines for registering, and have the official state form that can be downloaded/printed out and mailed in.  Remember that you will probably need to request an absentee ballot as well.

Deadlines: The U.S. Election Assistance Commission maintains a calendar of state registration deadlines.
Caution: some states have much earlier deadlines than Vermont.
