- Check with your Town Clerk for the hours of voting on a referendum, as they vary by town.
How do I vote?
- An optical scan machine is used by most in-person voters.
- A vote by phone option is available at every polling place for voters with disabilities or for any voter who prefers this option.
- Be sure you know your rights as a voter with a disability.
Do I need to show photo identification in order to vote? The short answer is no. Learn more about voter identification requirements.
What happens if I am not on the list of registered voters at the polling place? Thanks to Connecticut’s new Election Day Registration law, you can register and vote in person on Election Day at your town’s Election Day Registration location. To register in person, you will need to supply proof of identity and residence. Contact your local registrars of voters for information about location, hours of operation, and acceptable forms of identification.
