You might be able to register to vote on Election Day, as well as register online to vote under some legislation the governor is proposing. Gov. Dannel Malloy, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill and Common Cause Board Chair Dr. Bilal Sekou announced the plan on Monday, in commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Today, I can think of no better statement to make in memory of Dr. King than to expand and assure access to voting rights, given everything he stood and worked so hard for,” Malloy said. “Voting is a great responsibility, and an enormous opportunity, and, following in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we have an obligation to make every effort to preserve citizens’ access to the polls.”
