Election Day Registration

The pre-election voter registration cutoff deadline is seven (7) days before Election Day. Connecticut also has Election Day Registration on Election Day itself for voters who need it.

Election Day Registration permits anyone to register and vote in person on Election Day who meets the eligibility requirements for voting in this state and is not already registered, OR is registered in one town but has moved to another town. By law, a person is eligible to register and vote if he or she is (1) a US citizen, (2) age 18 or older, (3) a bona fide resident of the town in which he or she applies for admission, and (4) has completed confinement if previously convicted of a disfranchising felony. 

Election Day Registration is not available at the polling place but is available at the Shove Building  in the 1st floor conference room beginning at 6 am and ending at 8 pm. You can register and vote at this EDR location. Please plan to arrive early in the day as there may be long lines. If you are in line at the Election Day Registration site at 8 pm, you can remain in line to complete your registration and vote. You will need to provide proof of identity and residency.
