    It is unlawful to give false information concerning your qualifications to be a registered voter of a town or city in Vermont. The penalties are serious, including penalties of up to a $10,000 fine or imprisonment for not more than 15 years, or both.

    You may want to vote in the town in which you grew up, or where you lived for a long time. You may want to vote in the town where you have purchased land in Vermont, and plan to move to that town in the future. However, unless your principal dwelling place is currently in the town, you cannot apply to be added to the checklist of that town. Likewise, you cannot remain on a checklist in a town when you have moved to a principal dwelling place in another town or city. You can only register to vote in your current town of residence. It is perjury to give false information about your town of residence on the application form.
