Vt. allows voter registration during insurance buy

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont will become the third state to offer voter registration through its health insurance marketplace later this year.

Secretary of State Jim Condos said Monday that he has designated Vermont Health Connect as a voter registration agency. That means Vermonters will be able to register to vote at the same time they are buying insurance under the federal health overhaul law.

California and New York are the other two states that have taken such steps.

Open enrollment begins in October.
