There are many programs The American Legion sponsors and conducts. “Get out the Vote” is one such program. From the beginning, the Legion has believed it is not only a right that Americans fought and died for, but that it is a duty and responsibility of all eligible citizens to vote. By law, The American Legion is a nonpartisan organization. While in official uniform or on official Legion business, we cannot be partisan in our politics. We just believe everyone should vote for their candidate(s).
In Connecticut, you must meet three standards in order to register to vote. One, be at least 17 years, and turn 18 years before the election (in other words, you may register to vote at 17 but must be 18 on election day). Two, be a United States citizen, living in Connecticut. Three, if you have been convicted of a felony, you must have completed confinement and parole.
