Same- Day Voter Registration

Stafford voters (U S citizens residing in town age 18 or older) not yet registered to vote may still do so on Election Day. Election Day Registration takes effect for the first time for municipal elections on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.  Any eligible voter in Stafford---and in Connecticut, who wishes to cast a ballot but has not yet registered to vote is allowed to appear to the Registrar of Voters on Election Day, present the proper identifying documents, register to vote, and cast a ballot.

 

By law a person is eligible to register and vote if he or she is a U S citizen, age 18 years or older, and a bona fide resident of the municipality in which he or she applies to register to vote. Those eligible Stafford residents wishing to register and vote must appear in person at the Warren Memorial Town Hall and declare under oath that they have not previously voted in the election. They must complete the application for voter registration and provide documents to prove their identity and residence.  Once the new voter is properly registered, the Registrars of Voters will provide a special Election Day Registration (EDR) ballot and envelope to the voter and record its issuance to that particular voter.  The voter than declares under oath that he or she did not previously vote in the election and sign an affirmation that is printed on the back of the security envelope.  The new voter will cast their ballot in the EDR location, place it in the EDR envelope, and deposit the envelope in a secured EDR ballot box.
