Conn. Agencies Regs. § 9-35-2 - Transfer on registry list

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) An elector who changes his address within a municipality may, at any time, pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stats. § 9-35, request that his registration be transferred to his new address by presenting a written request therefor to either registrar of voters, by letter or upon the form prescribed by the Secretary of the State, stating his present address, the date he moved to such present address, and the address at which he was last registered, provided that a request received on election day or primary day, as hereinafter provided, shall contain a written statement by the elector, under penalties of false statement, that such elector has not voted prior to the time of such request for transfer at said election or primary either by absentee ballot or in person at any other polling place. The request for transfer of registration must be signed by the elector and submitted either in person or by mail by either the elector or any person of the elector's choice. Upon receipt of a request for transfer of registration, such registrar shall forthwith transfer the elector's name on the registry list to the elector's new residence. Requests for transfer of registration may be made on election or primary day at a polling place by submitting such request to the registrar(s) of voters (singly in a primary) or assistant registrar(s) of voters (singly in a primary) if a registrar is not present at the polling place. Upon receipt at a polling place of a request for transfer of registration by an assistant registrar(s) on election or primary day, such official(s) shall contact the registrar(s) of voters for the purpose of verifying that the elector's name appears on the registry list at his former address. Upon such verification such official(s) shall immediately enter the elector's name on the registry list at the elector's new residence, attach the completed request for transfer thereto, and the elector shall be permitted to vote. No elector shall be required to appear in person at the office of the registrars to request a transfer of registration on election or primary day. Before the close of the polls, the registrar(s) must contact the polling place officials at the polling place in the voting district where the elector was formerly registered to notify such polling place officials to remove the elector from the registry list.
(b) The prescribed form for request for transfer of registration shall be in both the English and Spanish languages in affected municipalities, as defined in Section 9-35-1(a), and shall be available in ample supply from the registrars of voters; in nonaffected municipalities the prescribed form for request for transfer of registration may be in the English language only.
