The office is open all year Monday-Friday 9a.m. - 3p.m.

General election deadlines: There is a one-week deadline for registering prior to an election and any mail-in registrations must be postmarked on or before that date. The only option for registering after the deadline is Election Day Registration at the Town Hall, which we recommend only as a last resort because of the much longer time it takes to process your application. Election Day Registration is not available during primaries and referenda.

Note: If you are registering for the first time or changing your status and do not want to be affiliated with a political party, please check this box: "NO. I do not wish to enroll in a party at this time." If you write "Independent" on your form, you are telling us that you wish to register with the Independent Party (Connecticut has existing Independent and Independant parties).

If you become a U.S. Citizen, move into town, or turn 18 the week before election day, the deadline for registering in person does not apply and you may register in person at our office. 



It's easy to register to vote in our state all year ~

    • Register in person at the Registrars of Voters’ office or the Town Clerk’s office at 84 South Main Street; at the Cheshire Public Library at 104 Main Street (if open); or at the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you register at a location other than the Registrar of Voters' office, however, be sure to complete and keep your receipt as proof of your application (if you are unsure of your status, please call the office at 271-6680). 
    • Register by mail by sending a completed registration card (which can also be obtained through the locations above) to the Registrars of Voters, 84 South Main St., Cheshire, CT 06410. 
    • You may register online via the Secretary of the State website: https://voterregistration.ct.gov/OLVR/welcome.do 
    • If you have any questions about your current voting eligibility status, polling place, party affiliation, or other matters relating to your rights, feel free to contact the Registrars of Voters office at any time: (203) 271-6680 or by mail at Elections Dept, Town Hall, 84 South Main Street, Cheshire CT 06410. 
    • The Elections Office visits Cheshire High School for a registration session at least once every year between January 1 and the last day of school.

You must be a registered voter in Cheshire in order to vote in Cheshire, whether in person or by absentee ballot.  For the convenience of our residents, the Registrars of Voters hold special registration sessions throughout the year.  The date, time, and location of these sessions are posted on the main page for VOTING AND ELECTIONS.



The polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. at all election events.
