A temporary poll location change in Brattleboro

BRATTLEBORO — Voting in the General Election has started in Vermont. As we announced, Election Day voting in Brattleboro will be at the VFW at 40 Black Mountain Rd. (off Putney Road) on Nov. 8 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

But there is no need to wait. Early voting began on Sept. 23 and extends the opportunity for voters.

Early or absentee voting is easy and fast. You can visit the Town Clerk's office during regular business hours and vote. If that does not work for you, call the Town Clerk's office, 802-251-8157, and ask to have an absentee ballot mailed to you.

You can then do the voting at home and either mail the ballot back to the Town Clerk or drop the ballot off at the office. We urge every voter to consider early voting if there is concern about driving to the VFW.

Of course, all voters are eligible to come in person to cast their ballots on Election Day at the VFW. There is more adjacent parking and less congestion there than at Brattleboro Union High School or the Municipal Building, and the location has easy entry and exit.
