Eligibility requirements to register and vote on Election Day are:

  1. The person is not already an elector or
  2. Is registered in one municipality but wants to change his or her registration because he or she currently resides in another municipality.

By law, a person is eligible to register and vote if he or she is:

  1. A U.S. citizen,
  2. Age 18 or older, and
  3. A bona fide resident of the municipality in which he or she applies for admission as an elector.

Voters will be required to provide identification that will prove their identity and their address. Acceptable forms of identification are driver's license, birth certificate, or social security card. If the identification does not include proof of address, the applicant must also provide documentation proving residential address e.g. a utility bill less than 30 days old, bank statement, property tax bill, paycheck, naturalization documents or a recent passport that includes the address.

In Southbury, Election Day voter registration will take place at Southbury Town Hall. Voters must have completed the registration process before being issued a ballot. All ballots must be cast by 8:00pm on Election Day. All same day applicants MUST cast the ballot immediately after registration.
