September is National Voter Registration Month
MONTPELIER >> Secretary of State Jim Condos would like to remind Vermonters that September 2016 is National Voter Registration Month. The nation's secretaries of state established National Voter Registration Month in September as a non-partisan means of encouraging voter participation and increasing awareness about state requirements and deadlines for voting, establishing www.CanIVote.org to help voters find official state resources.
"It is my goal this month to reach out to as many Vermonters as possible to ensure every eligible voter is prepared to vote on November 8th," Stated Secretary Condos. "I am proud of the work we have done to make registering simple and accessible to Vermont voters and I urge all eligible voters to register this month."
As part of National Voter Registration Month, Secretary Condos will be travelling the state helping register eligible Vermont voters and working to ensure Vermonters are aware of registration deadlines and requirements for the November 8th election. He welcomes invitations to attend community events, speak with students, or host voter registration drives in any town throughout Vermont.
The deadline to register to vote in Vermont is Nov. 2 at 5 p.m.
