The Vermont Senate is considering a bill that would move up the state’s primary election to early August. If passed by the full Legislature, the 2014 primary would be held on Aug. 5. Historically, Vermont’s primary was held in mid-September, but prior to the 2010 election the date was moved to late August to ensure that the secretary of state’s office has time to produce general election ballots in time to meet federal deadlines, including sending absentee ballots to overseas service members. The bill is scheduled for debate in the Senate on Wednesday.
