FROM THE TOWN CLERK
Lincoln’s Board of Civil Authority has voted to change our polling place to Burnham Hall, for the Nov. 3, 2020, General Election. For the safety of our community during this pandemic, it is our hope that most people will choose to vote by mail. Every registered voter in Vermont will be receiving a ballot in the mail soon. You are encouraged to read the instructions that come with your ballot, follow them carefully, vote your ballot, and return your voted ballot to the town clerk’s office as early as possible.
Your voted ballot can be mailed back in the postage paid return envelope, or it can be placed into the secure drop box outside the town office. Make sure you sign the certificate on the voted ballot envelope, or your vote will not be counted as they need to check your name off the checklist before the envelope can be opened. Please be assured that the privacy of your vote is carefully preserved. If you prefer to vote at the polls, you can hold on to your ballot and bring it with you on Nov. 3. There will be extras if you lose or forget yours.
If your ballot was mailed to an address where you won’t be able to receive it, if you haven’t received your ballot, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sally at 453-2980 or [email protected].
