[ARCHIVED] Register to Vote/Voter Registration Sessions


Any U.S. citizen 18 years old or older, who is a bona fide resident of this town, is eligible to register to vote in this town.  If you are 17 years old, you may “pre-register” and you will become a voter on your 18th birthday.  To register to vote, simply go to the Elections Dept. or Town Clerks office during regular business hours.  It is NOT necessary that you apply for registration in your own town of residence.  You may apply for registration in the office of any town clerk or elections dept in Connecticut provided you do so on or before November 1, 2011.  Your application will be forwarded to your own town for approval.

You may also request the Elections Dept. to send you a mail-in voter registration form which you may complete, sign and mail back to the Registrar of Voters.  You completed mail-in registration form must be postmarked or received by the Registrar by October 25, 2011.


    The Registrar of Voters will hold special voter registration sessions on the following dates at the times indicated.  

            Saturday October 22, 2011    10 am – 2 pm
            Tuesday November 1, 2011      9 am – 8 pm

If you are permanently physically disabled, you may arrange to have an election official visit you and take your application to register.  Call the Registrar’s office @ 203-452-5058 or 203-452-5059 for further details.  Hearing impaired persons may call Hartford TDD 1-760-509-6191 or 1-800-303-3161.

 Voter registration cards MUST be postmarked by October 25, 2011 for the applicant to be entitled to vote in the November election.   (Sec. 9-23g(d)(2)

Although the deadline for registration to vote in the November 8, 2011 election is November 1, 2011, persons who attain their eligibility to register after that date may do so.  Therefore, if a person becomes 18 years of age, a citizen or a resident of the town after November 1, 2011, such person may register on or before 12:00 noon on November 7, 2011 at the office of Registrar of Voters.

If you have had a name change, have moved within the Town of Trumbull, or moved to Trumbull from another to town, please contact the Trumbull Registrar of Voters.  Voting takes less time when information is correct.
