Share Your Vote-By-Mail Story

In this year’s general election, well over 250,000 Vermonters cast their ballots by mail, far surpassing the 2016 general election total of 91,000 for early and mail-in ballots

Were you one of those voters? If so, the Alliance wants to hear from you about how the new vote-by-mail system impacted your voting experience.

Send your opinions, personal stories, and/or suggestions to Amy Russo-Perler, Alliance Outreach Manager, at

To get started, please use the following questions as a guide.

  • What did you like about the way the 2020 General Election was conducted in Vermont?
  • How did this system impact your voting experience?
  • What do you think could be improved?

Note: We may share your feedback with elected officials or use it in outreach as part of ongoing efforts to make voting as accessible as possible in Vermont. For more information or support in telling your voting story, please contact Amy at
