We consider a vector dark matter (VDM) with a direct coupling with photon. We examine the effect of such an interaction on the CMB polarization to put new constrains on the properties of the DM particles. We show that a partially polarized VDM of the order of temperature fluctuation with a quadrupole distribution leads to a valuable CP for the CMB. In different DM-models the DM-masses range from few eV to a few TeV. We show that the CP angular power spectrum depends on the mass of VDM as C(S)Vl∝1/m6V such that for mV=10eV−1keV, the CP angular power spectrum is C(S)Vl≃103−10−11nK2. Therefore, the light VDM with masses less than 10eV leads to an unexpected very large CP which can be excluded from the acceptable range of the VDM masses
