The law goes into effect July 1, 2004.
On April 15, 2004, Vermont's Governor Jim Douglas signed S.202 into law.
The bill was passed by the Vermont House and Senate on April 2, 2004. The law states, in part:
For general elections, the secretary of state shall furnish each town with a number of printed ballots approximately equal to 100 percent of the number of voters on the checklist for the primary election.
No voting shall occur in any general election which does not use printed ballots.
It is the people of Vermont
who represent our greatest hope
and best opportunity for a brighter tomorrow.
~ Governor Jim Douglas
