This election determines who will be on the ballot in November for the Vermont-wide offices. There will be three ballots, you vote ONE and return the unvoted ballots.  The Town Clerk’s Office requests that the voters of Marlboro plan ahead: register to vote in advance of the election, request your absentee ballot, and vote from the safety of your home.  Return ballots by mail or in the drop box in the front of the Town Office.


Recommendations and guidance from the Vermont Secretary of State regarding elections include the following:

  • In order to vote early/absentee by mail, voters will need to request a ballot.  Voters will not be mailed ballots unless they request one. 
  • The Vermont Secretary of State office will be sending a postcard to all active voters in late June.  The postcards will explain all the ways to request a ballot and will contain a pre-paid, pre-addressed tear off absentee ballot request form.  Mail your request to the Town Clerk at PO Box E  Marlboro, VT  05344.
  • The “My Voter Page” at  mvp.vermont.gov  is the online resource that allows every registered voter to login and have access to a unique, voter-specific web page with information pertinent to you.  You may also request your absentee ballot here.  Please visit the site to make certain your voter registration record is accurate with mailing address and legal physical address.   
  • To register to vote, please visit the “Online Voter Registration Tool”  at   olvr.vermont.gov  which allows all eligible Vermonters to submit their voter registration application online anytime and anywhere they can access the internet.  Otherwise contact the Town Clerk.

The polling place WILL be staffed from 10 am until 7 pm on August 11, 2020 for voting and same-day voter registration, but the fewer people sharing the space the better.  We may be holding the election in the Town House for better social distancing.  Please contact town Clerk Forrest Holzapfel with any questions marlborotownclerk@gmail.com or (802) 254-2181

TOWN OF MARLBORO COVID-19 RECOMMENDATION

Starting May 28, 2020, the Marlboro Select Board strongly recommends all establishments located in the Town of Marlboro that invite the public into their premises for the purpose of receiving services, purchasing products, or otherwise transacting business, to encourage both staff and customers (or visitors) wear cloth face coverings or face shields over their nose and mouth while inside the establishment.

Exceptions: Cloth face coverings are not required on young children under age 5; anyone who has trouble breathing; or anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Posting of Recommendation: Each establishment is individually responsible to post signage at the entrance and at other appropriate locations stating that customers (or visitors) are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings by recommendation of the Marlboro Select Board.

Effective Period: This declaration shall remain in effect until the Marlboro Select Board amends, rescinds, or suspends the declaration, or until the Governor declares an end to the COVID-19 State of Emergency in Vermont, whichever occurs first.

Adopted by the Marlboro Select Board at its meeting on May 28, 2020.

The Marlboro Town Office will remain closed to the public until further notice.  This protocol is in place to limit exposure for our Town Officers from possible infection from COVID-19.  Our one-room office space makes social distancing difficult with more than two people at a time.  

We remain at work Monday through Thursday and will respond to questions as quickly as possible.  Contact by email is preferred, but leaving a message on our answering machine (802) 254-2181 or corresponding via paper mail is also fine.  We encourage use of the municipal website marlborovt.us for contact information for Town Officers, resources, and online payments.

Anyone wishing access to the town’s records should contact Town Clerk Forrest Holzapfel marlborotownclerk@gmail.com who will provide digital copies along with an invoice.  Full title searches are still possible.  Municipal public meetings will continue to be held on their regular schedule via video-conference.  Zoom links and call-in numbers are posted on public meeting agendas outside of the Town Office and on the website. The public is welcome to attend these video meetings.
