Hello everyone! I have a question about repotting VFT. As I was watering my plant yesterday I noticed that there are roots coming out of the drainage hole. Can I repot it now or should I wait? Help!

How close is dormancy?
If you're about a month or less away, wait until spring. If you anticipate a couple of months, you could do it now.
But, as long as it isn't showing anything detrimental, I'd probably wait until spring either way.

Fall just started here. Not sure when dormancy will start. This is my first time with the winter dormancy.

Unless it's just a big wad of roots I'd wait.
