VOTER INFORMATION

YWCA Hartford Region is on a Mission to increase participation in every election and register voters. 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!

What's new this year?

Connecticut’s November general election ballot will let voters weigh in on a state constitutional amendment that would allow the Connecticut General Assembly to introduce early in-person voting. The question will be: “Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to permit the General Assembly to provide for early voting?” Voters can vote “yes” or “no.” 

New voting laws passed last year make it easier to vote absentee by ensuring availability of drop boxes, allowing voters with temporary disabilities and chronic illnesses to automatically receive absentee ballots. And a new law passed this year further expands eligibility for absentee voting, mainly to commuters, caretakers and other voters worried about illness. Voters may qualify for an absentee ballot if they are traveling for only part of Election Day or if they are concerned about sickness, including COVID-19, for either themselves or someone they are taking care of.
