Locate and Contact Your Town or City Clerk

Guide to Vermont’s Town Clerks

In Vermont, elections are administered at the municipal level. Your municipal clerk (town, city, school district, water district, etc.), or his or her appointee, is the presiding officer for all municipal elections.

We are pleased to provide the above Guide to Vermont’s Town Clerks, Treasurers & County Clerks to assist you in locating and contacting your town, city, or county clerk or treasurer. This guide is updated as we receive new or revised information from the town or city clerk’s office. 

If you are looking for a location in the town clerk’s listing and cannot find it, it is likely that the location is a village or other place name. Visit Vermont Place Names—Real Places in Vermont to find the town or city that includes the village or place name.

Locate Your Polling Place

Polling Place Listing

Please use the above listing to locate your polling place for the primary and general elections.

These polling place locations are provided to our office by the town or city clerk for the primary and general elections. This listing is updated before each primary and general election year. Town meeting polling locations for 2015 will be in a separate listing on this page as soon as the information has been compiled.

All polls in Vermont open between 5 and 10 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Voter Checklists in Vermont

Each town or city in Vermont prepares a “checklist” of voters who are registered to vote within the town or city. The checklist contains the names and addresses of each resident who has been found to be a legally qualified voter in the town or city. Vermont checklists do not contain any political party information because there is no party registration in Vermont.

If you are interested in obtaining voter checklists in Vermont, you must contact the town or city clerk for each municipality. You can view the Guide to Vermont’s Town Clerks, Treasurers & County Clerks or we can mail you a paper copy. Checklists are public records in Vermont.

Since January 1, 2006, the secretary of state has a centralized voter checklist for the state of Vermont. If someone wants to obtain a copy of the statewide checklist, they must complete a sworn affidavit indicating the statewide checklist will not be used for commercial purposes. Please see below under “Resources” for a voter checklist request form.
