Connecticut also has Election Day Registration, but Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is strongly encouraging potential Connecticut voters to register in advance and skip any lines that may form on Election Day.

“Tomorrow is the last day to register prior to Election Day, and our goal is to make sure that every eligible voter registers, and every registered voter votes. If you aren’t yet registered, don’t wait! Register now at or at your local town hall, and make a plan to vote on Election Day and make your voice heard.”
