While we have our own WSA Presidential and Vice-Presidential elections coming up soon, we'd also like to remind you to register to vote in the US Presidential Elections.
The Connecticut Presidential Primary is happening on April 26th and now is the time to register to vote! If you are a U.S. Citizen and a Wesleyan student, you are considered a resident of Middletown and are therefore eligible to vote in the Connecticut elections. Registering to vote is a fairly simply process and should only take you a few minutes.
If you are registered to vote in another state and are planning on voting in the primary there, you cannot also resister and vote in CT.
Please make sure to read this entire email to prevent errors in your registration.
