*HARTFORD: Secretary of the State Denise Merrill this evening announced that Executive Order No. 12 issued by Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy has extended the voter registration deadline for the upcoming municipal elections in Connecticut to Monday November 7, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. Under Connecticut state law, the final, in-person voter registration deadline for the November 8th municipal elections was today, Tuesday November 1st at 8:00 p.m. but that has now been pushed back by nearly a week to accommodate those having difficulty getting to town or city offices to register.
“The severity of the power outages and other damage from this past weekend’s snow has the potential to disenfranchise thousands of Connecticut voters who are without electricity and even unable to leave their homes,” said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut’s Chief Elections Official. “Some town halls and municipal buildings also lack electricity, which makes it hard for voters who want to register by the deadline tonight. I commend Governor Malloy for taking this unprecedented action – this will give everyone who wants to cast a ballot in next Tuesday’s municipal elections extra time to register. Voters can now register as long as they properly fill out registration forms and deliver them in-person to their local Registrar of Voters or Town Clerk by next Monday November 7th at noon.”
