    Vermont voters will be electing a governor, U.S. senator, U.S House member and all 180 members of the Vermont Legislature.

    As of mid-week, there were almost 483,000 people registered to vote, which is higher than the 2016 figure for the same day, but officials won't say how many people they expect to cast ballots in Tuesday's off-year election.

    Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is seeking his third-term in the Senate. He's being challenged by Manchester businessman Lawrence Zupan.
