What is Election Day Registration?
Election Day Registration permits anyone to register and vote in person on Election Day who meets the eligibility requirements for voting in this state and is not already registered, OR is registered in one town but has moved to another town. By law, a person is eligible to register and vote if he or she is (1) a US citizen, (2) age 18 or older, (3) a bona fide resident of the town in which he or she applies for admission, and (4) has completed confinement and parole if previously convicted of a disfranchising felony.

Election Day Registration is not available at your polling place, but is available at a designated EDR location in each town, beginning at 6 am. You will need to provide proof of identity and residency.

A summary of Election Day Registration information can be found on the Secretary of the State’s website.
Your local registrar can be found here.

Does my ID need to have the address printed on it?
No, it does not. Your identification needs to fit one of these three categories:

  • Name and Picture, OR;
  • Name and Address, OR;
  • Name and Signature.
My driver’s license says that it is not for federal identification. Can I still use it as identification at the polling place?
Yes. You may continue to use your current driver’s license at the polling place when you vote. When you check in to vote, in lieu of the driver’s license, you may also show a credit card with your name and signature, or an ID with your name and photograph, or any document with your name and address, such as a checkbook or a utility bill.
