    1. Complete this form and drop it off in the outside drop box in front of Town Hall, scan and email it to jerichovermont@yahoo.com or mail it to Town of Jericho, PO Box 67, Jericho VT 05465 This form can also be used if you are requesting for a family member by filling in the voter's information in the top of the from and your information in the bottom part of the form.

    4. February 22 through February 26, and Monday March 1 from 9am to 5pm you can stop by Town Hall to request your own ballot in person. The request form will still need to be completed. Forms are available on the front door of Town Hall or you can print this form and bring it with you. The front door of Town Hall is locked, but knock on the door and Ben or I will meet you at the door, take your completed request form and then hand you your own ballot. (We can only hand you your own ballot. We will have to mail ballots to people other than the person standing in front of us.) You do not need an appointment to pick up a ballot the week of February 22nd or on Monday March 1st.

    You can also vote at the polls on election day at Mount Mansfield Union High School, 211 Browns Trace. Tuesday March 2nd, 2021 the polls will be open from 7am to 7pm. You can bring the completed ballot with you that was previously requested, check-in at the registration table and walk it to the vote tabulator at the exit. Or if you have not requested an early ballot, you can request a ballot at the check-in table, mark it in a voting booth and walk it to the vote tabulator at the exit.

    As part of this provision for 2021, a person shall not be required to collect voter signatures in order to have the person's name placed on the ballot as a candidate for a local election that is held at a 2021 municipal meeting. All that is required is that the candidate file a consent of candidate form with the Jericho Town Clerk. This needs to be the paper form either mailed or dropped off in the drop box in front of the Jericho Town Hall. The form needs to arrive by 5pm on Monday January 25th (the sixth Monday before the election)

    If you wish to check to see if you are registered to vote in Jericho, you can check the my voter page on the Secretary of State's Website. If you are not able to confirm it and you have been registered in Jericho since before 2005, it may be that your VTDL and date of birth is not in the system. Contact the Jericho Town Clerk if you have questions or concerns.

    Options to return a voted ballot:

    1. Mail : if you are returning a ballot by mail to "Town of Jericho, PO Box 67, Jericho VT 05465". You should mail by February 22nd to allow enough time for us to receive it. Be sure your voted ballots are inside the certificate envelope and you have signed the certificate envelope before mailing.

    2. Town Hall drop box: Once the voted ballots are inside the certificate envelope, and the certificate is signed by the voter, anyone can return the ballot to the drop box. The drop box is available 24/7 outside Town Hall to the left of the front entrance steps. This drop box can also be used on Tuesday March 2nd until 7pm.

    3. Attended outside drop box at polling place on election day: There will be an attended drop box under a tent in the bus lane of Mount Mansfield Union High School from 7am to 7pm. Voted ballots need to be inside the certificate envelope and the certificate envelope needs to be signed by the voter. It is OK to return a ballot for someone else as long as the voter has signed and sealed the ballots inside the certificate envelope.

    4. Voting in person on election day Tuesday March 2nd from 7am to 7pm. Curbside voting will be available for voters who do not wish to enter the school. To enter the school you will first be greeted with a COVID screening, then proceed to the voter check-in table. You can either bring the ballot that you requested ahead of time or a ballot will be issued to you at the check-in table. Once the ballot has been marked, the voter will be able to put the ballot through the vote tabulator at the exit. The voter can only place their own ballot through the vote tabulator.

    If you have interest in volunteering as an election worker during 2021, please contact Jessica Alexander, Town Clerk to find out more information. Please see the survey below. Many volunteers are needed to help the election day run smoothly. It is a great way to see your neighbors and feel good about doing something for the Town. All age groups are encouraged to participate. Students age 16 and older may work as a youth election officials. The voter entrance check-in table is a busy space that requires focused attention, ability to multi-task and ability to hear over background noise.

    Jericho ballots were mailed out Friday September 25th to all active voters in Jericho. If you do not receive your ballot by October 1st please contact the Jericho Town Clerk.

    The Vermont Secretary of State will be sending out early voter absentee ballots to all voters who were registered by September 1st. The address that is being used is the one that was on file in the Vermont Elections Management System on August 31. The ballot is not able to be forwarded (it will be returned to the Jericho Town Clerk if it is not deliverable as addressed) If a ballot arrives for someone in your family who is not at that address (ex. temporarily away at school) then contact the Jericho Town Clerk Office and we can arrange to mail it in a new envelope.

    Early Ballot Counting began October 13, 2020 following the Secretary of State's Directive. The ballots are being processed through the vote tabulator by members of the Board of Civil Authority.

    The schedule for early ballot processing is listed below. If you wish to observe, please call the Town Clerk's Office to make an appointment. As of October 16th 1129 ballots have been processed. As of October 22nd 2122 ballots have been processed. We will not know the results until the tabulator runs a printed report at the close of the polls at 7PM Tuesday November 3rd.

    All early ballot processing is taking place at Jericho Town Hall, 67 Vermont Route 15 except for Monday evening November 2nd will be at MMU.

    Here is a list of FAQ for the November 2020 election compiled by the Vermont Secretary of State's Election Division.


    The ballots can be voted as soon as they are received. However, once you cast your ballot it cannot be returned to you. The Jericho Ballot is 2 sided so be sure to vote both sides. It is best to use black ink but do not use a sharpie marker that will bleed through to the other side. If you make a mistake marking your ballot, you can get a new one up to 3 times. (I have never had to replace a persons ballot more than once but it is comforting to know that there is room for mistakes.) If you think you have made a mistake, call or email the Town Clerk Office and we can make a plan to replace your ballot. You will need to provide the first ballot in order to receive a replacement ballot. If you need a new certificate envelope, there is a few on a clipboard outside the Town Hall door with a few on it (24/7).

    The ballot will arrive with a postage paid returned envelope but you are not required to mail it back. If you wish, you may return it to the outside secure drop box at the base of the Town Hall steps. PLEASE be sure to sign the certificate envelope with your voted ballot inside. The outside drop box is available 24/7 and available through 7PM on Tuesday November 3rd for your ballot to count.

    Click here for the November 3rd Election Warning Notice


    If you are returning the ballot by mail, you can use the postage paid return envelope addressed back to "Jericho Town Clerk, PO BOX 67, Jericho, VT 05465" or use your own envelope. The Vermont Secretary of State recommends mailing ballots by October 24th to assure delivery by November 3rd. We will check the mail on November 3rd. Thank you to Victoria, Cindy, Bob, Lisa and all the mail carriers at the Jericho Post Office for the amazing job they did for the August 11th election.

    If you are returning the ballot by FED EX or UPS, the physical address is 67 VERMONT ROUTE 15

    If you are returning the ballot on election day, you also have the option to return it at our polling place , Mt Mansfield Union High School, 211 Browns Trace. There will be an outside attendant at a drop box in front of the school from 7am to 7pm. The polls will also be open for in-person voting inside the school gym.


    Election day voter registration is available at the polls on election day.

    Election Dates 2020: Polling Place -- Mount Mansfield Union High School, 211 Browns Trace
    Polling Hours -- 7am to 7pm

    * November 3, 2020 General Election

    This is the Presidential Election as well as State Officers and Local Justices of the Peace for Jericho. The ballot is legal size and two sided. The local Justice of the Peace race is on the back of the ballot and specific to Jericho. Every active voter will be mailed a November 3rd ballot between September 21 and October 1. Voters registering to vote in Jericho after September 1st will also have a ballot mailed to them when their voter registration is processed. The ballot will come with a certificate envelope and a postage paid return envelope. The early/absentee ballot that is received in the mail is exactly the same as the ballot that will be at the polling place November 3rd. The only difference is the mailed ballot is scored for easy folding. Ballots can be returned by mail but you are not required to mail it. The ballots can be placed in the secure drop box to the left of the Town Hall front steps 24/7. Ballots must be received back by 7pm on Tuesday November 3rd in order to count. It is very important that you follow directions and put the voted ballot in the certificate envelope and sign the outside of the certificate envelope. If your signature in not on the certificate envelope with your voted ballot inside, then the ballot will be defective and not count. There are 7 reasons that a ballot can be deemed defective.


    If you wish to return your ballot at the polls there will be an outside drop box that is monitored by an election official to return completed ballots. If you wish to go inside the building and vote, you will need to sign an affidavit that you are not using the ballot that was mailed to you and then go through voting process. Voter traffic inside the polling place will be in a one way direction. Please be aware that safety precautions will be in place and patience with the process is appreciated.


    Jericho voters registering to vote in Jericho after August 31st 2020 will not be included in the bulk mailing orchestrated at the Secretary of State level but will receive a November 3rd ballot by mail when the register to vote.
