Voting

The Democratic Party Platform states that Democrats “believe we must make it easier to vote, not harder.” The West Hartford Democrats are dedicated to ensuring that all voters have an opportunity to exercise their right to vote.

REGISTER TO VOTE: From our local school board to the Senate, it’s important to vote in every election. Take the first step by making sure you’re registered. It only takes a few minutes to complete Connecticut’s Online Voter Registration form.
