The Secretary of the State and the Registrar of Voters, as election officials, know that running a smooth election depends on being well-prepared. We want to help voters be prepared. Register to vote in advance or update your information with a new address, for example, can minimize confusion on Election Day. Online Voter Registration is a convenient service, especially during times of peak interest.
Voters are also encouraged to use the Secretary of the State’s ‘Voter Lookup Tool’. This tool allows a voter to look up their own information. They can confirm that their address on file is current as well as their party affiliation. It will be especially helpful in the Presidential and State Primaries because Connecticut only allows enrolled members of the major parties to vote in those elections.
The Registrars of Voters are elected for two-year terms at each biennial election. Each represents a major political party (one Democrat, one Republican).
The primary tasks of the registrars of voters are to encourage every eligible voter to register, every registered voter to vote, and to make sure that every vote is counted accurately. The registrars of voters also conduct elections and tally the votes.
