FAQs

 

What to expect at the Early Voting location?

When you arrive at the Early Voting location, you will check in and be verified as an eligible voter. You will then receive your ballot with an envelope. You will complete your ballot at a privacy booth and seal it in the approved envelope. Before you leave, place the sealed envelope in the secure receptacle as instructed by the election officials. Ballots will be secured unopened until Election Day.

 

When will ballots be counted?

 

Ballots cast during Early Voting will be sealed and stored securely in each town. They will be opened and counted on Election Day.

 

How does Early Voting differ from voting by absentee ballot?

 

Absentee Ballot voting requires a reason (from a list of six, found at MyVote.CT.gov). Early Voting is available to every eligible voter without a specific reason. Early Voting may be done only in-person, not via mail or drop box.

Can I vote on weekends?

 

Yes. Early Voting includes Saturdays and Sundays for most elections

 

How is it ensuredpeople do not vote twice?

 

The election official at your Early Voting location will record that you have cast your ballot, preventing you from voting early at any other location, submitting an absentee ballot, or voting on Election Day.

 

Can I register to vote during the Early Voting period?

 

You may register and vote on the same day during the Early Voting period before regular general elections. For Primary Election details, see detailed instructions on MyVote.CT.gov.
