Following the certification of vote totals and winners for federal and statewide offices at the 2020 Vermont General Election Canvass, Secretary Condos has announced the official 2020 Vermont General Election results.
Federal and statewide vote totals and winners were certified as official by Secretary Condos, chairing the Statewide Canvassing Committee, alongside Chairs or their designees from Vermont’s three major parties (Democratic, Republican and Progressive).
“This election year was like no other we have ever experienced,” said Secretary Condos. “I want to thank Vermont voters for overwhelmingly embracing the safe, secure voting options available to them, and for demonstrating our Green Mountain resiliency by voting in record numbers safely during a pandemic.”
The certified total of ballots cast in the 2020 General Election this year was 372,366, a record high of ballots cast during a Vermont General Election, representing a 73.5% turnout of registered voters. The previous record was 326,822 set in 2008.
