Vermont Election 0fficial Predicts 70 Percent Turnout

Vermont's top election official is predicting about 70 percent of the state's registered voters will head to the polls on Election Day.

Secretary of State Jim Condos said Monday the 70 percent figure would be in-line with the last three presidential elections.

He says the 461,000 registered in Vermont is at an all-time high.

Vermonters will vote Tuesday for president, governor, a U.S. Senator, the state's lone member of the U.S. House of representatives, as well the down-ticket statewide elected offices.

They will also elect 150 members of the state House of Representatives, 30 members of the state Senate and vote on a variety of local issues.


The opening of polling places varies by town, but all must be open by 10 a.m. Polls close at 7 p.m.
