According to the official results from last Tuesday's election, a record number of Vermonters voted using an early ballot. The results also show that Sen. Bernie Sanders received almost 6 percent of the vote in the presidential race as a write-in candidate.

In Bernie Sanders' new book, Our Revolution, the Vermont senator tells the story of his life, his career and his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

He also spells out the programs he believes the country should adopt to combat such ills as inequality, discrimination and lack of opportunity, not to mention the burdens of college and health care costs.

Sanders says he was not shocked by Donald Trump's victory. But he says the election results show it is time for the Democratic Party to undergo a fundamental reassessment.

Dr. Carol A. Moore, the former president of Burlington College, has spoken out about the college's closure earlier this year in a letter to the editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education.

In the letter, titled "What Really Happened at Burlington College," Moore blames the school's financial trouble on former board members and a large land purchase authorized when Jane Sanders was president of Burlington College.

If the mood of the Vermont delegation is any indication, then Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night played all right with Bernie Sanders supporters who have until now been skeptical of her candidacy.

Attending the Democratic National Convention is a brutal slog, filled with meetings, speeches, travel and long nights at the convention itself. One Vermont delegate’s hectic week in Philadelphia has been especially trying, but Maria Rinaldi and her partner, Mike Csele, are accustomed to finding creative solutions to challenges.

The media covering the Democratic convention this week have focused relentlessly on the alleged divide between Bernie Sanders’ devotees and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. But is the Bernie-or-Bust narrative as real — or as relevant — as your news feeds might be making it out to be?

Vermont’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention are in Philadelphia this week for the culmination of the 2016 presidential primary.

Democrats opened their national convention in Philadelphia by front-loading some of their highest profile speakers on the event's first night.

First Lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned speech; Massachusetts Senator and progressive darling Elizabeth Warren spoke as well. But there was no more anticipated speaker on stage Monday night than Vermont's own Bernie Sanders.

All eyes were on Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia Monday night, and perhaps no contingent of supporters was more engaged than the group Vermonters who traveled to Philadelphia to support their hometown senator.
