All town registrars offices will be open Nov. 1 for voter registration
All registrars of voters offices in the state will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 1 for anyone who has not yet registered to vote and would like to do so.
Nov. 1 is the last day to register in advance of the Nov. 8 election. Candidates for president, the U.S. Congress and Connecticut General Assembly seats are on the ballot this year, and voters must be registered before they can vote.
The registrars of voters are located in the Town Hall or City Hall building in each municipality.
People also can register to vote online at voterregistration.ct.gov before Nov. 1.
Registering to vote on Election Day will be allowed for the first time in a presidential contest in Connecticut this year, but local election officials are encouraging people to register in advance to avoid long lines.
Each town will have a designated site to register and vote on Election Day for people who do not register by the Nov. 1 deadline.
Election Day applicants will be required to provide both proof of residency and identity, and if they previously registered in another town, the admitting officials must contact that municipality to be sure a vote has not been cast there.
