If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
The voter registration deadline for Connecticut is Oct. 23.
Here’s information on how you can register in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
- Fill out a voter registration form in person at Montville's Registrar of Voters at Montville Town Hall 2nd Floor, Room 205, 310 Norwich-New London Tpke., Uncasville. Note that Voter registration forms must be mailed or delivered in person. The Registrar will not process forms sent by fax or email. Also, keep in mind the office hours are limited: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Call 860.848.9606 (Lorraine Elliott ext. 340, Mary Clark-Wilson Ext. 341) for more information.

- The Registrar of Voters also does an annual High School Registration drive held at the high schools at which 17-year-old students may pre-register to vote. Students attending school from other towns may also register during this drive. Their voter registration cards will be sent to their town of residence.
