Registrars of Voters

Presidential Primaries

The Democratic and Republican Presidential Primaries have been postponed until June 2, 2020. Party rules specify you must be registered to vote with the party holding the primary that you would like to vote in.

If you are registered as an unaffiliated voter and wish to vote in the upcoming Presidential Primary, you must switch your registration to Democrat or Republican before noon on June 1, 2020

If you are a registered Democrat or Republican you are no longer eligible to switch parties, all changes had to be made by March 2, 2020

Changes to your voter registration can be made online at https://voterregistration.ct.gov/OLVR/welcome.do. Voters can also change their registration in person in the Registrar of Voters office or with the Town Clerk in the Essex Town Hall by appointment only.
