Dear Voters:
You may have received a white postcard entitled Request for Early Absentee Voter Ballot.


These postcards were mailed out from the Secretary of State’s election office. This is part of the encouragement to vote-by-mail due to Covid-19 to avoid large numbers of people at the polls on election day.


Many of you who received this postcard have ALREADY requested to receive ballots for the upcoming elections. If so, IGNORE this postcard. You will be mailed your ballots soon.


If you have NOT already requested absentee ballots for August and November, and want to vote by mail, fill out the postcard and mail it back.

Please DO NOT FOLD AND TAPE. Simply tear off the return portion. The State has generously covered the cost of the postage, BUT the mail carrier said the town will be charged 20 cents for each postcard that is folded and taped, rather than torn off and returned. (Details details!)

The Halifax Listers, in conjunction with NEMRC, will begin conducting inspections again the week of June 15th.  There will be NO interior inspections. A social distant interview can be held and encouraged at the door about the interior. Anyone wanting an actual interior visit will be put on a list for a future inspection if we are able. When your property is on the schedule, you will receive a mailed notice in advance of that visit. If questions, please call 802-368-2080 or email halifaxlisters@myfairpoint.net.
