The Granby Registrar of Voters will hold a special last day, all-day voter registration session from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at their Town Hall offices. Residents are encouraged to stop in or call to verify their voter registration. You can also check your voter registration online using the Secretary of State’s website: sots.ct.gov 

The State legislature has changed the state statutes so that U.S. citizens who are 18 by November 5 can register to vote on Election Day. Unregistered voters will need to go to Town Hall (not the town’s polling site in the Community Gym) on Election Day to register. They must bring proof of identity and proof of residence to vote.  If they are registered before 8 p.m., they will get to fill out a ballot and place it an envelope. If their ballot is uncontested at 8 p.m., it will go to Granby’s polling site at the High School where it will be counted separately from the official ballots and the absentee ballots. The Registrar of Voters strongly encourages everyone to register before Election Day, so you can place your ballot directly into the machine to be counted, and avoid potentially long lines at Town Hall. Unregistered voters in line at Town Hall at 8 p.m. will not be able to vote on Election Day. Voters need to be aware that voter registration is NON-transferable. If you moved from another town or state, you still need to fill out a new registration card, with your current address, in order to vote.

Online voter registration is available for new voters or to make changes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at: voterregistration.ct.gov

Voter Registration can be verified 24/7 at: dir.ct.gov/sots/lookup.aspx
