Voting Eligibility

Am I eligible to vote?

  • Are you at least 17 and turning 18 on or before Election Day?
  • Are you a United States citizen living in Connecticut?
  • If you have been convicted of a felony, have you completed confinement? (More details)

If you can answer yes to all three of these questions, you are eligible to register to vote in Connecticut.

What if I moved recently?

  • You will have to update your voter registration to reflect your new address.
  • If you moved to Connecticut from another state, if you moved to a different town within Connecticut, or even if you moved within the same town, your polling location may have changed.
  • Your voter registration should always reflect your current home address.

What if I am a student?

If you are a college student living away from home, you may choose to vote in one of two ways:

  • Either complete an absentee ballot for the election in your hometown.
  • Register to vote in your college town.

What if I am in the military or currently living overseas?

What if I have been convicted of a felony in the past?
