Published on Monday, 5 November 2018 20:53


BRISTOL – Today is Election Day, and if voters want to make their voices heard, they should first be aware of where to go to vote and make sure that they are registered to do so.

Voting will take place statewide from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.

In Bristol, voter registration will take place between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. However, Sharon Krawiecki, Republican Registrar of Voters, advised that people register to vote no later than 7:30 p.m.

“It is different than the polling systems where you are fine as long as you are in line by 8 p.m.,” she said. “It takes about 20 minutes for the system to update.”

You will need proof of residency as well as identification, like any recent bill or a paycheck or any document which shows the full address.
