Absentee Ballot Information

Absentee ballots can be obtained by the following methods.  You must request ballots every calendar year.  You can request ballots for yourself and/or for another Barre City registered voter:

All absentee ballots must be returned prior to the closing of the polls at 7:00 P.M. on Election Day to be counted. Those absentee ballots returned by mail must arrive at the Barre City Clerk's office by close of the office the day before any election, or at the Post Office on election days. The Barre City Post Office box will be checked at 5PM on election days to assure ballots are received and counted.  Absentee ballots may also be dropped in the drop box to the right of the front door of City Hall, or the drop box behind City Hall.  The drop boxes are available to receive ballots until 4:30 PM the day before elections.  Absentee ballots may also be dropped off at the polls on election days, and must be received before the polls close at 7:00 PM.  Absentee ballots received after election days will not be counted.
