There is no deadline to register, you may register to vote up to and including the day of the election. However, if you register online the day before the election or on Election Day, your application may not be processed and your name may not appear on the checklist and you may be asked to fill out another application at the polls. To be sure your name appears on the checklist, please register by the Friday before the election.

You need to include your Vermont driver’s license number or your Vermont Non-Driver ID number on the form. If you do not have a Vermont driver’s license or a non-driver ID or your license has been suspended, you may use the last four digits of your social security number.

Running for Local Office
Election petitions are available at Winooski City Hall. The deadline for filing petitions is Friday, January 31, 2020 by 4:30 PM.
Petitions must include a minimum of 50 signatures, although we recommend acquiring more. Petitions may also be obtained via this link but must be filed in-person at Winooski City Hall (27 West Allen Street).
Please note: as of 2019, voters may now sign as many candidate petitions as they want, even for the same office, regardless of how many seats are being elected. This means that, if you have already signed a petition for one candidate for an office, and you receive a petition from another candidate for the same office, you can sign both petitions if interested. A voter’s signature can be counted on multiple petitions. (Per 17 V.S.A. § 2681)
Winooski Polling Location
All elections in Winooski take place from 7 AM - 7 PM at the Winooski Senior Center on 123 Barlow Street.
