NORWALK, Conn. – Connecticut residents have until 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, to register to vote and be on the voter list prior to Election Day, Nov. 4.

In order to register to vote, residents must present themselves in person at City Hall by 8 p.m.

“By law, Registrars of Voters are required to keep their offices across the state of Connecticut open up until the deadline to accommodate those last-minute voters who want to register before the election,” Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said in a Monday press release.

While Oct. 28 is the deadline to register to vote for the overwhelming majority of Connecticut residents, there are several exceptions, the release stated. Anyone who moves within or into Connecticut after Oct. 28 but before Nov. 4 can still register to vote in person at their local registrar of voters’ office. Connecticut residents who become United States citizens and citizens who turn 18 years old during this same time period may also register in person at their local registrar of voters’ office up until Election Day and still be included on the voter list.

Polls will be open across Connecticut from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 4, for Election Day.
