Tomorrow is an important primary vote. For our Windham/Bennington district, a single Democratic Governor candidate will be determined out of four running and a single Republican candidate for Governor will be determined between Gov. Scott and his challenger. There will also be advancement of two of the three democratic candidates running to be Windham County Senator for those of you in Wardsboro, Dover and Whitingham.
At your polling station, any Vermonter can use one of any of the three major party ballots – the Republican, Progressive or Democratic ballot.
You will not see my name on any of the ballots because I am not affiliated with a party and run for office as an independent.
The primaries purpose is to help the parties reduce the number of candidates they will support in the General Election in November. If you are an independent – you can and should still vote tomorrow – choose the major party ballot that holds the contest you most care about.
You can write my name in for State Representative on whichever ballot you decide to use, but it is not necessary. Independent candidates automatically qualify to be on the general election ballot in November.
If you are not currently registered to vote, you can still vote tomorrow – Vermont has same day voter registration. The Vermont Secretary of State hosts a great FAQ page which can help with any other questions you may have when voting in tomorrow’s primary.
