How to register
To register to vote, you must be a citizen of the United States, be a resident in the town, have proof of identity and be 17 years old turning 18 by November. You can register in Town Hall where you reside or you can register with the State of Connecticut online.
To register in your town, you must bring proof of identity and citizenship if you were foreign born. Social security cards, driver's license or birth certificate are suitable proofs of identification.
If you live with a physical disability, you may request a visit from the local Registrar of Voters.
You may mail-in your voter registration but be sure you mail it in before the deadline.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation from the local Registrar of Voters in about three weeks. You are not a voter until they have approved your application and you receive this.
You can register for a primary
up until noon the day before. If you are registering for a general election, you can do it up until the 7th day prior to the election. If you are registering to change parties, there is a three-month period between registering and changing party.
You can also register online.
