Temporary Officiant Registration Now Online

The Vermont Secretary of State’s Office is pleased to announce a new online Temporary Officiant Registration Portal.  Users can navigate to the portal by clicking the “Temporary Officiant” link at the top of every page of the Vermont Secretary of State Website.

The new portal provides applicants with 24/7 online registration service. The full application process may be completed online, or applications can be printed and mailed. The portal provides additional pertinent information and links for temporary officiants, including a guide to completing the Vermont Department of Health Civil Marriage Certificate.

Vermont’s Temporary Officiant Program has experienced steady growth in popularity with usage increasing 62.86% from 2014 to 2018.  We believe adding the online registration option provides even more availability and ease of use for Vermont civil marriage participants.
