The Wilton League of Women Voters reminds all potential voters, especially those who are about to turn 18 years old, they should register to vote. Local primaries for both the Democratic and Republican parties are scheduled for Aug. 14. In order to vote in a primary in Connecticut, you must be registered as a member of the Republican Party or the Democratic Party.
Any U.S. citizen who is a Connecticut resident and will be 18 years old by Election Day — Nov. 6, 2018 — may register to vote and vote in the August primary. That means that Connecticut 17-year-olds who will be 18 years old by Election Day and who otherwise meet the qualifications of an elector may register and vote in the primary.
