Campaign to increase voter participation in Elections 2018

Leagues across Connecticut are actively engaging with citizens to make sure they are registered to vote AND ready to vote on Election Day, November 6th.

Registering to vote is a great feeling, right? There’s nothing more American than voting—it’s our right and responsibility as citizens of a great democracy.  During the 2016 Presidential election, nearly half (46.9%) of eligible voters chose not to cast a vote! Sounds crazy, right?  Well this year, the LWVCT is on a mission to reduce that statistic.

Voter information is what the League of Women Voters does best!  We designed to help both new and experienced voters in Connecticut find information for the 2018 Elections. It includes information for the November 6 General Election, access to info on registering to vote, who the candidates are, voting by absentee ballots, voting at the polls, and working at the polls. All in one spot!
