The Registrars are elected every 2 years during the Gubernatorial or Presidential election. The position is defined by Connecticut General Statute 9-185 which allows for the election of two registrars for each municipality. The top vote recipients from each major party at the regular state election become registrars. The Office is responsible for federal, state, and local elections. This office also holds primaries and referendums as well as maintains all voter files, registers new voters, and conducts annual canvasses of voters.
Any persons interested in working at an election, please contact the Registrar's office at 203-245-5671, or by email.
