Voter's Rights

 

Connecticut has a Voter's Bill of Rights, which guarantees the right to:

  • Inspect a sample ballot before voting
  • Receive instructions on operating voting equipment
  • Cast a ballot if you're in line when the polls are closing
  • Receive assistance, including assistance in languages other than English
  • Vote free from coercion or intimidation by election officials or any other person
  • Cast a ballot using voting equipment that accurately counts all votes
  • Vote by provisional ballot if you have not registered to vote and your name is not on the voter list
  • Be informed of how to restore your right to vote if you were incarcerated for a felony conviction
  • Vote independently and privately at a polling place, regardless of physical disability

If any of your rights are violated, you have the right to file an official complaint with the State Elections Enforcement Commission at 866-733-2463 or the United States Department of Justice at 800-253-3931.
