Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Connecticut if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of Connecticut
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
You are not eligible to vote in Connecticut if:
  • You are in prison or jail for a felony conviction
  • You have been legally declared "mentally incompetent" or incapacitated by a court
Restorative Requirements
  • If you have completed a felony prison sentence, even if you are still on parole or probation, then you are immediately eligible to register to vote.
U.S. citizens living overseas may register and request a ballot using the overseas voter registration/ballot request form. Your state does not require an ID to be provided in order the register/request your ballot.
    U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
    • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

    Can I vote if I have a record?

    I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

    Students who lived in Connecticut before moving to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Connecticut voting residency, should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. To count as a resident under Connecticut law, you have to be a “bona fide resident.” While some older cases suggest that you might have to have intent to remain in Connecticut permanently, the Secretary of State’s office has said that you only need to have the “intent to remain indefinitely.” Basically, if you do not know what you are going to do or you do not have definite plans to leave the state, you should be able to establish Connecticut residency.

    Will I need ID?

    To register to vote in Connecticut you should provide one of the following:
    • Connecticut Learner's Permit
    • Last Four Digits of your Social Security Number
    • Your Connecticut Driver's License Number
    • Your Connecticut non-driver ID number
    If you do not have any of these IDs, you can provide a copy of one of the following with your registration application:
    • Current and Valid Photo ID
    • Government Issued Document that shows your current name and address
    • Utility Bill
    • Government Check
    • Bank Statement
    • Paycheck that Shows your Current Name and Address
    If you are registered to vote in Connecticut you are required to show ID to vote; or, you may instead sign an affidavit or similar document. Accepted forms of ID include:
    • Social Security Card
    • Any Form of ID which shows your Name and either your Address, Photo or Signature
