Register to Vote!

YWCA Hartford Region is on a Mission to increase participation in every election and register voters for the 2020 election. We believe that change happens at the local level. Here’s how to start:

Support us in our Get Out The Vote Initiative. Get your friends and family registered. Know someone who is turning 18? Help them see the value in showing up to the polls. Don’t forget if you had a name change or change of address you must update your registration. Get the word out through social media — we can each play a role in empowering our community. Sign our Pledge to Vote and let your voice be heard!

2020 Voting:

Tuesday, August 11, 2020 (Presidential and State Primary Election)

Governor Ned Lamont has signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in Connecticut to vote absentee in the August 11, 2020 primary elections.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill intends to mail every registered voter in the state an application they will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot. The application will be sent via U.S. Postal Service, and will include a postage paid return envelope. After processing the applications at the local level, all voters who requested an absentee ballot will receive the ballots in the mail, which will also include a postage paid return envelope. Each town will also have a secure dropbox in a prominent location to allow voters to deliver their absentee ballots in person without close personal contact.
