It’s Election Day! Polls in Connecticut are open from 6am to 8pm. If you don’t know where to vote, visit the Secretary of the State’s voter registration lookup page to find your polling place.
If you are not yet registered to vote, you can register today and cast a ballot using Connecticut’s Election Day Registration system. However, you cannot register to vote at a polling place, as Election Day Registration is only done at one location in each town. Find your town’s Election Day Registration location here.
Before you head to the polls, don’t forget to check out CEA’s District Comparison to see how the candidates running in your area stand on the issues that you care about.
If you’re still planning to vote via absentee ballot, your ballot must be dropped off at the official ballot drop box outside your town hall by 8pm on Election Day. Ballots received after 8pm, when polls have closed, will not be counted. If you have already voted by absentee ballot, you can check to make sure your ballot has been received here.
If you’re voting in person today, please share your voting photo on CEA’s Facebook page. All members who share a photo will receive a cloth CEA face mask (while supplies last).
As voters continue turning out in record numbers across the nation, to make their voices heard in this extraordinary election, the National Education Association and its state affiliates released the #CountEveryVote Pledge expressing the importance of counting until every vote is counted.
Tens of millions of Americans are choosing to participate in our democracy by voting—many of them risking their health and the health of those they love. That choice is one that signifies a fundamental belief in democracy and affirms voters’ desire to ensure the peaceful transfer of power as called for by our Constitution—one of the hallmarks of American self-governance. The American people have a right to expect that every voter who made the choice to participate in our democracy deserves to be heard.
Make your voice heard—vote!
