You're not too late to vote for president

Didn't register? If you did not register, you still could vote for president. CT enacted a "presidential ballot" that allows CT residents who have not registered to vote for president. If you are 18 or older and a resident  of a  CT town, you can get the ballot at your local town clerk's office -- not a a polling place. However, you can only vote for president. Learn more here.

After you vote, keep the sticker. It could get you free stuff, like ice cream and coffee. Find out more here.
