November General Elections and Justice of the Peace Elections
As promised, here is your next ballot update: October 2, 2020!
First, absentee ballots have now been mailed out to all actively registered Vermont voters by the Secretary of State’s office. This mailing included everyone through September 3, 2020. If you registered to vote after September 3, you will get a ballot mailed from us at the town office. You do not need to request an absentee ballot to receive one. If you don’t receive a ballot by October 8th, feel free to call us at 763-7207 or email email@example.com.
If you haven’t received your ballot, it may be your mailing or voter registration status needs updates. Please go to your voter page at https://mvp.vermont.gov/. to check your registration and voter status. Your voter status is also posted on our checklists located at the clerk office, post office and Royalton Academy building, along with the sample ballots and warnings.
We are asking you consider voting absentee. Everyone at our post office has been working hard with us to ensure timely delivery. We believe that if you fill out and mail your ballot as soon as possible, there won’t be an issue. However, all other options are still available: our 24/7 dropbox at the clerk office, voting early at the office 8am – 3pm Monday through Thursday or coming to the school gym polls at 223 South Windsor Street from 8am to 7pm on November 3, 2020. We will also have ballots available if you forget and for same day registrations.
Last, please read both sides of your ballot, your ballot instructions and sign your security envelope. The number one reason ballots don’t get counted is because the voter forgets to sign the envelope. This is easily avoided if you take the time to read the instructions carefully.
