FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- All eligible Connecticut residents who have not yet registered to vote may do so on Election Day for the first time this year, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Secretary of the State Denise Merrill announced.

Unregistered voters are permitted to go to their registrar of voters office on Election Day, present the proper identifying documents, register to vote and cast a ballot at their city hall or town hall.

“The right to vote and access to elections is a paramount right and responsibility of our democracy,” said Malloy in a statement. “Same-day voting helps to ensure that all citizens have a voice in their government."

"I have been working closely with Registrars of Voters across Connecticut to make sure everyone is ready to accommodate those voters who for whatever reason have not yet registered prior to Election Day," said Merrill, Connecticut’s chief elections official, in a statement.

Those wishing to register and vote on Election Day must appear in person at the designated location at town or city hall and declare under oath that they have not previously voted in the election. They must complete the application for voter registration and provide documents to prove their identity and residence.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5, for municipal elections in most Connecticut cities and towns. Voters can go online to find out more about Election Day registration.
