Voter registration deadline extended
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill has announced that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has extended the voter registration deadline for the upcoming municipal elections to Monday at noon.
The final, in-person voter registration deadline for Tuesday's municipal elections had been Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. but it has been pushed back by nearly a week to accommodate those having difficulty getting to town or city offices to register. "The severity of the power outages and other damage from this past weekend's snow has the potential to disenfranchise thousands of Connecticut voters who are without electricity and even unable to leave their homes," said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut's Chief Elections Official.
Forms are available online at www.sots.ct.gov or at town offices or Division of Motor Vehicles offices. Registrars are required by law to be in their offices next Monday until midnight. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. in most Connecticut cities and towns.
