Vermont Election Laws
We are pleased to provide you with two ways to view Vermont's election laws: online and in printed form. The election laws are contained in Title 17 of the Vermont Statutes.
Note that there may be specific provisions of Titles 16, 20 and 24 that also
relate to Vermont's elections, which you should be sure to review as necessary.
Please note that all of Vermont's cities, and many of the larger towns, also
have a municipal governance charter that may have provisions that differ from and
supersede the laws included in Title 17. If your municipality has a governance
charter it should be consulted alongside these general election laws. Wherever
possible the two sets of laws should be read in conjunction with one and the
other; however, where the laws may conflict, the provisions of the municipal
charter will generally govern.
Our election laws are constantly being revised by the Vermont Legislature.
The online and printed versions of our election law are both up to date through the 2013 legislative session. As the
legislature makes further changes to our laws, you will see these updates reflected in both places. If you have questions or suggestions about how to improve this
publication - or Vermont's election laws - feel free to call the Director of Elections, Will Senning, at (802)-828-2363.
