Press Release 10/8/18

(Kent, Connecticut) – Do you know what the only two animals allowed into the Polling area are? If you guessed Service Dog as one you are correct. The other might surprise you. Find out the answer to this and any other questions you might have about registering to vote and what happens before and after you cast your ballot at the Library.

The Kent Memorial Library is pleased to sponsor a timely program “Voting: Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers” on Saturday, October 27 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Reading Room. Join the Kent Registrar of Voters and the Kent Town Town Clerk as they answer your questions: What is a Tabulator? What about cyber attacks? What happens if my name isn’t on the official voter list? How do I change parties? Where do I get an Absentee Ballot? Why do I have to give my Road Name first?  What does the moderator do? What if I haven’t registered and want to vote?

“Although focused on Kent, everything we will be discussing pertains to all the towns and cities in Connecticut. We all follow the same laws and regulations and we all use the same voting equipment and computer programs,” Karen Chase remarks. “We will have Voter Registration forms available for people who need to register. And we can check voter registration status,” she continues.

This program is free & open to public. Seating is limited, please register by calling 860-927-3761, going to online calendar, emailing, or registering at the library.
