Going to be 18 years old? Time to Register To VOTE

 The League of Women Voters of Litchfield County reminds all potential voters about to turn eighteen years of age that they should register to vote.

Any U.S. citizen who is a Connecticut resident and will be 18 years old by November 6, 2018, may register to vote.

Any 17-year-old who will be 18 years old by Election Day and who otherwise meets the qualifications of an elector may register and vote in a primary.

In order to vote in a Primary one must be registered as a Republican or a Democrat.

Local primaries are scheduled for August 14, 2018. The General Election will be November 6, 2018.

You may get a voter registration form at any town or city hall, any public library, the Department of Motor Vehicles, other state agency offices, or via the “for voters” page at our State website, www.lwvct.org. Or, call your registrars or municipal clerk to have a voter registration form sent to your home. Mail or hand in your form to the registrar of voters of the town or city where you reside.
