Joanne Stavrou, and the League of Women Voters of Greenwich, reached out to remind concerned Round Hill area citizens to make sure their Greenwich, CT voter registration is in order, before the upcoming primary deadlines:
EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE !!!
Primary Day in Connecticut is August 14th. Both parties are holding Primaries on this day. Please note that in order to vote in the Democratic Primary you must be an enrolled Democrat. To vote in the Republican Primary you must be an enrolled Republican.
If you will be away on Primary Day you may still vote by obtaining an Absentee Ballot. To obtain an Absentee Ballot, you must request an application for the ballot from the Town Clerk. Call 203 622-7897, go to website, or visit the office at 101 Field Point Road in Greenwich.
Once you have received and filled out your absentee ballot, you may deliver it in person (another person may NOT deliver a completed ballot on your behalf) at the Town Clerk’s office before 4 pm, Monday, August 13th. If you choose to send it in, be sure to mail it early enough that it arrives at the Town Clerk’s office by 8 pm on Primary/Election Day, August 14th. The mailing address is Town Clerk, Town Hall, 101 Field Point Road, Greenwich, CT 06830. If you visit the Town Clerk office, you may fill out the application, receive your ballot and vote at the same time.
Unaffiliated Voters (registered, but not enrolled in any party) may apply to become a party member as long as the mail application is received by the Registrar on or before August 9th, 2018. The deadline to enroll in a party in person is August 13th, 12 noon in the office of the Registrar of Voters at Town Hall.

If you are not yet registered to vote you may register by mail, in person or online at https://voterregistration.ct.gov/OLVR/welcome.do. New voters registering by mail must make sure mail is postmarked by August 9th. The deadline to register in person is August 13th, 12 noon. To check your status go to the Town’s Vote Registrationwebsite.
Do not forget to EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE!
