Elections officials, town clerks on voting in the midterm election

A mail-in ballot for Vermont's 2022 midterm election, a white return envelope with a purple stripe on its left side, and a "declaration of voter" ballot envelope all sitting stop a colorful yellow-green pile of fallen autumn leaves.

The midterm election is Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. Vermont mailed all registered voters an official ballot (pictured) in late September. This hour, "Vermont Edition" talks with elections officials about this election, and we hear from a roundtable of college students about why they're voting this year.

Almost 140,000 Vermonters have already voted by mail in the 2022 midterms, and many more will soon go to the polls in person. This hour, we're checking in with elections officials about early voting and election security. We'll talk with town clerks about local ballot questions that may require some voters to cast another ballot.

Our guests are:

  • Jim Condos, Vermont's Secretary of State
  • Tracy Borst, Thetford town clerk and treasurer and president of the Vermont Municipal Clerks' and Treasurers' Association
  • Pam Cousino, Ferrisburgh town clerk
  • Susan McNamara-Hill, longtime clerk for the Town of Essex now also administering the first-ever election for the City of Essex Junction

Broadcast live on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
