Any person may register to vote in the town of his or her residence who, on Election Day:

* is a citizen of the United States;
* is a resident of the state of Vermont (and a resident of the town in which you apply to be added
   to the checklist);
* has taken, or has previously taken, the Voter’s Oath (formerly called the “Freeman’s Oath”); and
* is 18 years of age or more.

Any person meeting the requirements above who will be 18 on or before the date of a general election
may register and vote in the primary election immediately preceding that general election. See 17 V.S.A.
§ 2121.

For purposes of voter registration, the Vermont Statutes define residency as follows: “resident” shall
mean a person who is domiciled in the town as evidenced by an intent to maintain a principal dwelling
place in the town indefinitely and to return there if temporarily absent, coupled with an act or acts
consistent with that intent. 17 V.S.A. § 2122(b).
