Elections and Voter Checklists
Register to vote by submitting a voter registration form to the town clerk. When completing your application, you must include your Vermont driver’s license number on the form. If you do not have a Vermont driver’s license number or if your license is suspended, include the last four digits of your Social Security number. Be sure to take the Voter’s Oath if you have never voted in Vermont (the Oath can be self-administered and is contained on the application). Once your application is completed, you may submit the form to the town clerk via mail, fax, or email. You may also complete the application in the town clerk's office during regular business hours.
Marriage Licenses must be obtained from the clerk of the town you reside in (if a VT resident). If you do not reside in Vermont but wish to be married here, you can obtain a license from any clerk in the state. Both parties to the marriage need to be present at the time the license is issued, and a photo ID is required for each person. The cost for a license is $60, plus $10 each for certified copies of the marriage certificate. For more information on getting married in Vermont, visit the Vermont Department of Health's website at http://healthvermont.gov/research/records/vital_records.aspx or click here to download their info sheet.

Hunting, fishing or trapping on properly posted land is illegal. Properly posted land will have records filed with the Town Clerk and the Fish & Wildlife Department. See Title 10, V.S.A., Sections 5201 to 5206.
To be properly posted land:
- The owner or the person who has exclusive rights to fish, hunt and trap on the land will post the signs.
- The owner or person posting the land shall annually record the posting at the Town Clerk’s office for a fee of $5.00
- Signs must be not less than 11½ inches wide by 8 inches high in size
- Lettering and background on the signs must be of contrasting colors
- The signs must contain the wording that hunting, fishing or trapping or any combination of the three are prohibited or forbidden
- Signs are valid even if additional information is on the sign, as long as a reasonable person would understand that hunting, fishing or trapping are prohibited or forbidden
- Legible signs must be maintained at all times and dated each year
- Posting signs must be erected on or near all the boundaries, at each corner and not over 400 feet apart.
Posting property can be very labor intensive. Signs must be maintained around the perimeter of the property. If a sign is missing, the land is no longer properly posted, and there is no violation when a person accesses the land. In addition, the signs must be dated and the posting registered annually with the Town Clerk’s office. Forms can be obtained at the Town Clerk's office during regular business hours. The fee to post land is $5 per parcel.
