Greenwich Registrars Offer Voter Registration Lookup Online
Greenwich residents can now check their voter registration status online in anticipation of the upcoming Presidential election.
The Registrars of Voters have posted a new online tool to check registration and polling place. The webpage http://greenwichct.org/vote. By entering their first name, last name, and date of birth, a voter can check their status. The results returned include the voter’s address, their polling place, and their State Assembly and Senate Districts. Also included is a Google map which shows the location of the polling place.
In a prepared statement, Republican Registrar Fred DeCaro III said that since posting the new lookup tool online in early September, it has helped reduce the number of calls to the office. It has also helped discover typographical errors in the voter registration system.
“Recently we had a gentleman call in because he could not find his information online. We discovered that his first name had been mis-typed when his information was originally entered seven years ago. Although it did not impede him from voting, we are always glad when we can clean up our
database,” DeCaro said.
Democratic Registrar Sharon Vecchiolla said the inclusion of State Assembly information in the lookup is important. “Due to the redistricting which occurred earlier this year, several thousand voters in our town are voting for a different State Representative. We encourage everyone to check online to see if their State Representative has changed.”
Voters also can call the Registrars to check their status. The office is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday – Friday. The telephone: 203-622-7889 or 203-622-7890.
