Helpful Information for the November 3 General Election and Absentee Voting in Brattleboro

Good morning,

Below is information that might be helpful to know for the November 3rd General Election.

Due to the pandemic, there is no in-person early voting in Brattleboro. However, all active registered voters were automatically mailed a ballot. Please make sure to follow the instructions included with your ballot, including SIGNING THE CERTIFICATE ENVELOPE and making sure your ballot is INSIDE that envelope. Please use a BLACK PEN OR PENCIL to mark your ballot. DO NOT USE A MARKER as it can bleed through to the back of your ballot and require you to need a replaced ballot. If you have not received your ballot, or if you have any questions about your ballot, please call the Town Clerk’s office at 251-8157.

Ballots can be returned using the postage paid envelope provided, or use the secure drop box that say “BALLOTS HERE” in the Municipal Center parking lot. The drop box is checked numerous times per day. Or you can return it at the American Legion on Election Day.

If you opt not to vote the received ballot and choose to vote at the polling place on November 3rd, bring the received ballot with you. You will not be turned away without it, but it will save time.

Polling place for all three districts in Brattleboro is the American Legion, 32 Linden St., from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm.

Due to COVID-19, masks will be required (and provided if needed) to enter the American Legion for voting, and hand sanitizer or gloves will also be provided. If you are unable to wear a mask and did not vote absentee, there will be a space outdoors for you to vote. Due to social distancing and reduced capacity indoors, please be prepared for potentially longer than normal wait times.

Parking is available at the American Legion, the State Building, and the Municipal Center parking lots.  There are handicapped parking spaces close to the American Legion entrance.

There is a wheelchair immediately inside the door with a ramp for anyone that may need it.
