The Norwalk League of Women Voters will hold two days of voter registration at the Department of Motor Vehicles at 540 Main Avenue in Norwalk. The first drive is Saturday, September 21 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and the second is National Voter Registration Day: Tuesday, September 24 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Connecticut residents can register to vote if they are age 18 or older, or will be 18 by Election Day, which is November 5 this year. If you have moved to another town, you need to re-register with your new address. It is also recommended that you renew your registration if you have changed your name (for example by marriage), or have not voted in several years.
Elsa Peterson Obuchowski, a member of the Norwalk League of Women Voters steering committee and coordinator of the voter registration drive, said “When I was younger I lived in New York City and I never managed to figure out where to go to register to vote. I felt like I didn’t count, and I don’t want other people to feel that way. I believe registering and voting should be easy and transparent. Our government is government of the people, by the people – without voters, we would not have a government.”
“Our right to vote is precious and we should all exercise that right” said League member Rosaria Konstantin.
