Voting Information

Share

by State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

Early voting options are now available thanks to the work of the Connecticut General Assembly last session, and later this month, voters in the state will take to the polls to vote in the 2024 presidential primary.

This legislation was made possible by a state Constitutional amendment approved by a wide majority of Connecticut voters in 2022. It will provide you – and voters across the state – with more flexibility and access to cast your vote with the confidence that your voice is heard and your civic duty is fulfilled while avoiding large crowds and scheduling conflicts.

Anticipating that you may have questions about this new process, I hope the guide below will be helpful in providing information to answer them.

Here’s what you need to know:

When is early voting?
For the April 2nd presidential preference primary election, early voting will take place from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM on March 26, 27, 28, and 30. Due to Good Friday and Easter, there will be no early voting Friday, March 29th or Sunday, March 31st.

Early voting for the August 13th primary elections will take place between August 5th and August 11th.

Early voting for the November 5th general election will take place between October 21st to November 3rd.

Is my early voting location the same as my regular voting location?
Not necessarily. Each town will have at least one early voting location, and municipalities with a population of 20,000 or more will have the opportunity to add additional locations. For Stratford residents, your early voting location will be at the Baldwin Senior Center (1000 W Broad Street). Additionally, you can confirm and/or find your early voting location on your municipality’s website, at MyVote.ct.gov,or by calling (860) 509-6200. Are there deadlines to be aware of?
Monday, March 25th at noon is the deadline to register with a political party to vote in the early voting period for the presidential preference primary.

Monday, April 1st at noon is the deadline for registering in person with your registrar of voters or town clerk to vote on April 2nd, and for unaffiliated voters to enroll in a party for in-person voting.

If you are not yet registered to vote, file your registration application with your town’s registrar of voters by noon on the business day before the day you want to vote.  Voteing is one of our country’s most privileged and fundamental rights, and your participation is crucial in shaping the future. Let’s amplify the impact of our collective voice – start voting early!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to my office with any further questions on this new and exciting initiative!   As always, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact my office at (860) 240-8585 or email me directly. Joseph P. Gresko
