Am I eligible to vote in Connecticut?

To vote in Connecticut, you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen and a resident of Connecticut
  • At least 18 years of age before Election Day
  • Registered to vote, which you can do on or before Election Day

You are not eligible to vote if you committed a felony in the past AND are in a correctional facility or on parole (or on probation if you were found guilty of violating Connecticut election laws). If you have completed your sentence and your parole, and have paid all fines associated with your conviction, you can register to vote.

You are eligible to vote if you have mental or developmental disabilities unless a probate court judge has specifically ruled that you are incompetent to exercise your right to vote.


Where Do I Vote?

Connecticut polling places are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
