From the office of the Registrar of Voters:
With the November election only a few weeks away, the Hamden Registrars of Voters wants to alert residents to voter registration deadlines.
The Registrar’s office is located in Hamden Government Center, 2750 Dixwell Ave., and is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. On Tuesday, Oct. 26 the office will remain open until 8 p.m. It's the last day to register in person.
There will be a special voter registration drive on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013 at the Miller Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
To register, you should bring identification and something with your current Hamden address, if not on the ID. Examples of ID include driver’s license, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document containing your name and address.
People who have moved into Hamden need to re-register, even if previously registered in another town. Voters who have moved within town or changed their name should update their registration by filling out a new registration form. Seventeen-year olds may pre-register if they will be eighteen on or before Nov. 5.
The Registrars caution residents who registered by mail or at a location other than the Registrar’s office and who have not received a letter of confirmation to call the office to confirm their status. The last day to register by mail is Oct. 22 (postmark).
For absentee ballots, contact the Town Clerk at 203-287-7112. For further information and registration forms, call 287-7081 or visit the town website, www.hamden.com, and go to Government, Departments and Registrars of Voters.
