General Election November 3, 2020
LOTS OF INFORMATION! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
There is NO in-person EARLY voting in Middlebury for the General Election.
The Vermont Secretary of State’s Office started mailing ballots to all active registered voters in Vermont as of Monday September 21, 2020. The name and address information they are using was pulled from the Statewide Voter Checklist system on September 2, 2020. This means there is a three week gap between the time they pulled the information and when ballots are being mailed. We are aware that there will be many changes in registrations and addresses during this three week period and we are prepared to issue ballots to all voters who do not receive their ballot. If you do not receive your ballot by Wed October 7, 2020 notify my office so that we can make sure you get your ballot.
If you receive a ballot in the mail which includes an AFFIDAVIT OF NO BALLOT CAST, fill out and sign the affidavit and return it when returning your voted ballot. DO NOT put the affidavit in the signed envelope with your voted ballot. Place the signed affidavit separately in the return mailing envelope. This affidavit is to swear to the fact that you are voting only the one ballot and no other ballot.
VERY IMPORTANT! Make sure you read and follow all the instructions that are on the envelope where you will place your voted ballot. Make sure you sign and date the envelope! The number one reason ballots are determined defective and not counted is because the voter did not sign the certificate on the envelope that contains the voted ballot.
RETURNING YOUR BALLOT
Ballots may be returned by mail in the prepaid envelope or put in the secure drop box located on the landing next to the Town Office entrance near the Library. Ballots may also be dropped off at the polls on Election Day 7am to 7pm at 154 Creek Road, the Middlebury Recreation Center Gymnasium. But the sooner the ballot is returned the better.
BRING THE BALLOT YOU RECEIVE IN THE MAIL WITH YOU TO THE POLLS IF YOU CHOOSE TO VOTE IN PERSON ON ELECTION DAY. Our checklist will show that you have already been issued a ballot.
