  • Registration is available beginning on the 31st day before a general election or on the 21st day before a primary.
  • Connecticut passed legislation in 2012 authorizing online voter registration, but a system has not yet been implemented.

Elections Performance Index

See also: Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index

Connecticut ranked 6th out of the 50 states and District of Columbia in the Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index (EPI), based on the 2012 elections. The EPI examines election administration performance and assigns an average percentage score based on 17 indicators of election performance. These indicators were chosen in order to determine both the convenience and integrity of these three phases of an election: registration, voting and counting. Connecticut received an overall score of 73 percent.[3]
