Hartford, CT - Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is reminding eligible voters in advance of the Connecticut primaries Tuesday August 12, 2014 about the polling place locator tool easily accessed online at www.sots.ct.gov where voters can type in their address and find where their polling place is located. The tool, developed by the the Pew Center on the States’ Voting Information Project (VIP) in partnership with Google and Microsoft, also shows voters a map with directions how to get to their local polling precinct as well as the candidates on the Republican or Democratic primary ballot in their voting district.

“This online polling place locator is a wonderful example of how technology is making it easier than ever to participate in the democratic process,” said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut’s chief elections official. “By providing this free service to Connecticut’s eligible voters, I hope many registered Democrats and Republicans take advantage of easily finding their polling location and go out and exercise their right to vote next Tuesday!”

A direct link to the online polling place locator tool is found at:

Though the deadline to register to vote by mail and online has passed, Secretary Merrill encourages eligible voters who have yet to register to do so in person at town offices by August 11th at noon. Only registered Democrats and Republicans can cast a ballot in the primary. Unaffiliated voters face that same August 11th at noon deadline to enroll with a major party.

Voters can go online to www.sots.ct.gov/vote to see if they are registered to vote and where their polling place is located, register to vote, download an application for an absentee ballot, and view the list of candidates. Absentee ballots for the primary are now available and will be counted as long as town clerks receive them by 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 12th. Polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on August 12, 2014 for registered Republicans and Democrats to cast ballots.
