LAST CHANCE – Register to Vote by Tomorrow!

A quick reminder that the deadline for voter registration with your desired party for the Tuesday primary in Connecticut is TOMORROW by 12 pm NOON, Monday February 4th. If you voted here last year you’re already set, but if you’re not a registered Connecticut voter this is your last shot before the primary. Just show up at the Municipal Building at 245 deKoven Drive (a block past Main Street between College St. and Washington St., directions shown above) by noon and you’re golden. The office opens at 8:30 am, so if you have morning classes you’ve got some leeway. Don’t forget photo ID!

Wesleying blogger Saul gives a brief logistical rundown of why your vote actually matters in this primary:

Not only does CT matter, but the district we are in matters immensely within the state!

Many districts send 2 delegates to the convention. That means that even if the vote is split 60/40, each candidate will get 1 delegate each.

But our district sends 3. So a 51/49 split will send 2 delegates to the winner, and 1 delegate to the loser.

Wes voters might very well throw our district’s third delegate towards one candidate or another!

    @2:03: if you intend to vote in CT, your place of residence is not in another, state, but rather your address here at Wes. They don’t care what your driver’s license says, since they don’t legally have to correspond.@nick: definitely not, but does it matter? most likely, it’s too late for you to get an absentee ballot anyway. therefore you could change your registration to here if you want to make sure you get a chance to vote. you can always change it back. essentially, your only active registration is your most recent.

    There’s no way to check whether I’m registered, is there? I voted in 2004, but not last year because I was off campus and not organized enough to get an absentee ballot. And, of course, all of our mailing addresses have changed since then.

    often letters (bills are better, or bank statements or pay statements or things), preferably unopened, can be used to prove residency.

    What I meant is that my license says I’m a resident of Maine (because I am.) So how do I prove I have a right to register in CT? Will a student ID do for that purpose?-OP

    Good question. A student ID is probably fine, but you might also want to bring a Driver’s license or other ID for backup just in case.

There’s a group of students heading down at 10:30am, go with them.Also, residents of Hi-Rise and Lo-Rise should all have this flyer (at the top of the post) pasted to their doors when they wake up in the morning…guys, you live 30 seconds from the ballot box, there’s no excuse to sit this one out!
