LWVCT Voter Resources Guide: General Election 2020

 

Virtual Youth Voter Registration Presentation & Guide

Both the presentation and the lesson guideline document  have been updated with Connecticut voter registration information before the Presidential Primary. Check back for updates for the General Election.

With everything shut down due to the novel Coronavirus, it's made it impossible to do our typical voter registration work of meeting students in person and helping them register to vote.  However, the national league has created a Virtual High School Voter Registration Lesson that we can use and pass along to our local high school teachers.
 

Mock Voter Registration Presentation

The Mock Voter Registration lesson and power point is designed to be given just prior to a voter registration tabling event.

These materials were developed when League volunteers realized that high school and college students often lack the basic knowledge about the electoral process making it difficult for them to understand and make informed choices that the form requires.  Although information about the elections is covered in their high school coursework it’s not something students necessarily remember when they fill out a voter registration card or register online.

What to Expect at the Polls on Election Day in Connecticut Presentation

The sequel to the Mock Voter Registration Lesson. 

It’s appropriate for high school, college and other community venues.  The presentation was developed to help make new voters feel comfortable about voting for the first time. This presentation walks new voters through the voting process, from when they first enter to when they exist their polling place.  The topics covered include:

  • checking your voter registration status
  • locating your polling place
  • what forms of ID to bring with you
  • reviewing your town’s actual ballot
  • how to fill in the ballot
  • how to request an absentee ballot
  • and more!
