REMEMBER - there is NO Election Day Registration (EDR) for this primary, so be sure to check your information and make sure you are registered BEFORE Primary Day. For this Gubernatorial Primary, you MUST be a member of either the Democratic or Republican parties in order to vote, and your privileges must have "attached," which means that you are eligible to vote in the primary. If you are not sure of your status, you can call or email us and we'll check it for you.

Voter Registration Card Request Letters

The Registrar's Office has mailed letters and voter registration forms to a number of Norwich residents because we need a voter registration form with an original signature on file for every registered voter

If you've received a letter and a form, please fill out the form completely (you can leave Question 1a blank) and return it in the self-addressed, stamped envelope that was sent to you. There's NO problem with your registration, and you remain an eligible voter in Norwich - we just need the form with an original signature for our files. Thank you in advance for your cooperation - if you did NOT receive a letter, you don't need to do anything - your records are complete.

The State of Connecticut now offers Online Voter Registration - you can access the system via this webpage: CT Online Voter Registration.

NOTE: The Registrar's office receives monthly lists of persons convicted of a felony. These persons are then removed (if present) from the Voter List and a letter is sent to their last known address. 

We also receive monthly lists of felony case releases. Released persons are eligible to register to vote - view specific information on restoration of voting rights.
