Connecticut residents have until today, Tuesday, Oct. 26, to register to vote in advance of Election Day.

Although Connecticut does have same-day Election Day registration, residents are encouraged to register in advance to avoid long lines that may form on Election Day.

“Tuesday is the last day to register before Election Day. Every Connecticut voter must and will have the opportunity to cast their ballots safely and securely,” said Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill in a news release last week.

Municipal elections will be held in Connecticut on Nov. 2.

Registration is available for potential voters in multiple ways:

  • Online by visiting the voters' registration website by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday
  • In-person at a local voters’ office in your town hall between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.
  • By mail, postmarked by today

Connecticut residents can also check their registration and find their polling place here.

"Your vote is your voice,” Merrill said.
