First Time Registering by Mail or Online 

If you are registering to vote in Vermont for the first time by mail or online, you must include a photocopy of an acceptable form of ID. Acceptable forms of ID are:

  • Valid photo ID (driver’s license or passport)
  • Current utility bill
  • Current bank statement

The Voter’s Oath 

First time Registrants in VT must take the voter’s oath. The oath may be self-administered. You must be 18 to take the oath:

VOTER’S OATH: “You solemnly swear or affirm that whenever you give your vote or suffrage, touching any matter that concerns the State of Vermont, you will do it so as in your conscience you shall judge will most conduce to the best good of the same, as established by the Constitution, without fear or favor of any person.” – Vermont Constitution, Chapter II, Section 42

If you have previously voted in Vermont, you do not need to take the voter’s oath again. The oath can be administered by a commissioned military officer or by any other person qualified to administer oaths, any person over the age of 18, or by yourself. You may also take the voter’s oath as an affirmation. You must take the oath before voting by early or absentee ballot.

If you are registering for the first time in Vermont using the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) Federal Postcard Application or another form not specific to Vermont, you must take the voter’s oath. The Vermont voter registration form and the FVAP instructions contain the voter’s oath that must be taken.
