Same Day Registration

The pre-election voter registration cutoff deadline is eighteen (18) days before Election Day. Connecticut also has Same Day Registration on Election Day itself for voters who need it.

Same Day Registration permits anyone to register and vote in person on Election Day who meets the eligibility requirements for voting in this state and is not already registered, or is registered in one town but has moved to another town. By law, a person is eligible to register and vote if he or she is (1) a US citizen, (2) age 18 or older, (3) a bona fide resident of the town in which he or she applies for admission, and (4) has completed confinement if previously convicted of a disfranchising felony. 

Same Day Registration (SDR) is not available at your polling place but is available at a designated SDR location in each town, beginning at 6 am and ending at 8 pm on Election Day. SDR is available during the hours of early voting as well. You will register and vote at the designated SDR location in your town. Please plan to arrive early in the day as there may be long lines. If you are in line at the Same Day Registration site by the close of polls, you can remain in line to complete your registration and vote. For example, on Election Day you would need to be in line by 8 pm. You will need to provide proof of identity and residency.
