There is no party registration in Vermont. All registered voters can vote in the primary election-but can only vote one ballot. You will be given a ballot for each of the major parties. You mark one of the ballots and put the remaining unvoted ballots into a discard bin.
Any registered Vermont voter may apply for an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
If you’ve voted in Vermont before or if you’re voting for the first time and provided ID when you registered, you do not need to show ID to vote.
If you’re voting for the first time in Vermont, registered to vote by mail or online, and didn’t provide ID when you registered to vote, be sure to bring one of the following when you vote at the polls:
- Valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license or state ID card; or
- A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows your name and address.
