Selectboard Meeting Wednesday November 4 – 6:00 PM
Call in: (US)+1 385-999-6264
Election Day is fast approaching and we at the Town Clerk’s Office want to clear up the confusion about how people can vote this year.
First, Absentee Ballots will be mailed out to every active voter in Vermont. Wolcott ballots were mailed today Thursday, October 1st, 2020. If you do not receive a ballot by Wednesday, October 7th please call us at 888-2746 to let us know.
If you are unsure if you are registered to vote or have questions about your voter information you can check your “my voter page” at https://mvp.vermont.gov/. This site allows you to submit changes and register to vote online.
You can also check if you are registered to vote by reading one of the notices that we have put up around town. The notices have an election warning, the voter checklist and a sample ballot. These notices are posted at the Town Offices, Post Office and Glee Merritt Kelley Community Library as well as on our website: wolcottvt.org.
We are recommending you vote absentee rather than in person if you feel it is not safe to do so. We want everyone to feel safe and health in lieu of Covid-19. However if you want to vote in person please bring your absentee ballot with you and vote on it here. If you come to register to vote we will make a ballot available for you to cast that day.
We understand that there has been some concern about the speed of the mail. We want to assure you that if you mail your ballot back as soon as possible, there won’t be an issue. If you are worried about this you may drop your ballot in our new locked box located at the Town Offices. It is checked weekdays at 7:45 am and 3:45 pm.
You may also bring your ballot and hand deliver it to us during office hours, Monday 8am -4 pm, Tuesdays 8 am – 4 pm, Wednesday-Friday 8 am – 4 pm.
Finally, PLEASE remember to READ THE INSTRUTIONS that are with your ballot. The number one reason ballots don’t get counted is because the voter forgets to sign the envelope or forgets to put ballot in signed envelope. This is easily avoided if you take the time to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
Stay Safe and Healthy
