Election Day Registration
The pre-election voter registration cutoff deadline is seven days before Election Day. Connecticut also has Election Day Registration (EDR) on Election Day itself for voters who need it for regular elections only, not special elections or primaries.
Election Day Registration permits anyone to register and vote in person on Election Day who:
For EDR you must go to Greenwich Town Hall between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. The EDR location is currently the Lounge in the Lower Level of Town Hall.
- is not already registered OR is registered in one town but has moved to another town,
- is a US citizen,
- is age 18 or older,
- is a bona fide resident of the town in which he or she applies for admission
- and has completed confinement and parole if previously convicted of a disfranchising felony.
The entire process is lengthy, as it includes voter registration and verification at Town Hall, and then finally the actual casting of a ballot at your polling place. Depending on the popularity of this option and the individual voter’s circumstances, wait times can vary from a minimum of 20 minutes to an hour. A voter must bring the appropriate proof of identity and residency
