HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Eligible Connecticut voters are not yet registered can still sign up to vote on Election Day.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill says Tuesday's municipal election will mark the first time that Election Day Registration will be in effect in Connecticut.
Any U.S. citizen living in Connecticut, 18 years or older, is not already a registered voter, and wishes to cast a ballot, is permitted to visit their local Registrar of Voters office on Election Day. Once there, they must provide the proper identifying documents, register to vote and then cast a ballot at their city or town hall.
A law passed in 2102 made Connecticut the 12th state in the country to enact Election Day Registration.
The vast majority of cities and towns are holding municipal elections on Tuesday.
