Instant Access to Vermont State, County and Municipal Records
Vermont Public Records
In accordance with the Vermont Public Records Law, this website provides every person living in Vermont with the right to obtain, observe, and search for public records. The act specifies that all records and government information are presumed public and available to citizens.
The purpose of this website is to ensure that members of the general public have access to government records, and to provide them with tools to access them easily and efficiently. The website also ensures that these residents are not required to provide personal information, unless the record in question is considered confidential by law or by court order.
The records presented on this site contain information on criminal records, court records, vital records, state background checks and include over 5 million transparent public records.
Vermont public records began being created in 1777 for all 14 counties in the state. These records are also increasingly available online through third party and governmental websites thanks to the standardization of digitation of public records. This process has increased over the past 30 years. This helps to ensure Vermont abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
