Voter registration at Wilton High School

Young people are eligible to vote if they are U.S. citizens and will turn 18 on or before Election Day. This eligibility allows 17-year-old students to vote in any primary election on Aug. 12, 2014, as long as they turn 18 by Nov. 4, 2014.

With help from the Wilton League of Women Voters, Wilton’s Registrars of Voters Tina Gardner and Carole Young-Kleinfeld will supervise a two-day voter registration drive during lunch at the Wilton High School cafeteria on Wednesday, Feb. 26, and Thursday, Feb. 27. With proper identification, such as a driver’s license or a Social Security card, students may submit Connecticut voter registration applications on that day.

According to Republican Registrar Ms. Gardner, the student voter registration drive usually adds at least 75 new voters to Wilton’s voter list.

Democratic Registrar Ms. Young-Kleinfeld pointed out, “This year voters will be electing a governor, state officials, and representative in Congress. Young people have a critical voice to lend to decisions that will affect their lives.”

The registrars will also have information available about absentee voting for students who will be out of town at college or unable to get to the polls on Election Day.
