(WTNH) — Oct. 29 is the final day for Connecticut residents to register to vote in advance of Election Day.
Voters can register at town halls, DMV, by mail or on myvote.ct.gov/register by 11:59 p.m. Registrars of Voters will be at town halls to register voters 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Municipal elections might not get the publicity of big national elections, but the folks who win next week make decisions that directly affect you: How much you pay in property tax; How your kid’s school is run; When your street gets plowed in the winter.
Now, if you forget or don’t have a chance to register today, there is election day registration in Connecticut. The thing is, we have seen registrars get overwhelmed with demand for election day registration.
Connecticut residents can register to vote on Election Day, but in order to skip the lines, there are several ways to register in advance.
If you need to check if you’re registered or don’t know your polling location, go to myvote.ct.gov/lookup.
