When the Registrars of Voters are not available, the Town Clerk and Assistant Town Clerk can register Newington residents to vote. Each person who wishes to become an elector must complete a Voter Registration Form and present identification.
The deadline for registration of voters prior to an election is the fourteenth day before the election for mail-in applications and the seventh day for in-person registrations. Exceptions: Those persons whose rights mature as to age, residence or citizenship may register between the seventh day and the opening of the "matured rights" limited session (9 AM to 12 Noon the day before the election) and be eligible to vote in the election.
Those persons who are not "matured rights" applicants and who apply between the seventh day before the election and the opening of the limited session, may be registered, but the privileges of an elector will not be extended to such persons until two days after the election.
