Centralized Voter Registration Information

Voter registration statistics

The Centralized Voter Registration System is utilized by all towns in Connecticut. It is the exclusive means by which a town produces an official voter registry list. The system includes information contained in voter registration applications, indicates whether eligible voters participated in past elections and primaries, and whether they voted in person or by absentee ballot. This election history information is required to be updated by all towns within 60 days after each election or primary.

To purchase a copy of the voter registry file on compact disc you must make a request in writing either by mail or email at:

                              Secretary of the State

                              PO Box 150470
                              Hartford, CT 06115
                             
LEAD@ct.gov


The cost of the file is $300 and can be paid by check or credit card; cash is also accepted. We must receive payment before releasing the voter registry file.  If you have any questions you can contact us by phone at 860-509-6100 or by email at

Voter Registry Privacy Program

The Voter Registry Privacy Program took effect on June 23, 2021* and serves to protect individuals and families who fear for their life or safety by restricting the disclosure of their information from the official State of Connecticut Voter Registry. This program is separate from the Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) in the following ways:

 

  1. The Voter Registry Privacy Program is open to any individual who swears under penalty of perjury that disclosure of the information in the official registry list endangers the safety of them and/or their family. The ACP is designed to protect a victim of family violence, injury, or risk of injury to a child, sexual assault or stalking that has permanently and confidentially moved away from their abuser. There is no move required under the Voter Registry Privacy Program.

     

  2. The Voter Privacy Program does NOT establish a confidential mailing address OR forward first-class mail like the ACP does.

     

  3. The Voter Privacy Program only limits the disclosure of information from the official voter registry of Connecticut. It does not limit disclosure of any other information such as DMV, marriage records, birth records, etc.
