If you want to vote in an election - whether for city council, school board, governor, or president - you need to register to vote first.

  • You can pick up a Voter Registration form at any public library, Department of Motor Vehicles or other government office.
  • You can download a Voter Registration form in English or in Spanish, print it out and mail it to your registrar of voters. You'll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the form. Remember to write "Green Party" into box 9.
  • As of 2014, you can register to vote online.

Why You Should Register Green

  • Registering Green is a way of "voting" for the kind of world you want. Join a party which stands for your values, instead of one that is the "lesser of evils."
  • Registering Green makes a clear and effective political statement. The more people who register Green, the stronger the Green Party will be, and the more all parties will take green issues and green voters seriously.
  • Registering Green does not limit your voting options in the general election. Since you can vote for any candidate, choosing a party is really about what you believe in.

The Green Party of Connecticut was founded and achieved ballot status in 1996. Recently, almost 1,500 Connecticut voters are registered as Green Party members. Please join us.

Does every CT town allow Green registration?

Not currently, because it's complicated. Green Party enrollment was recognized everywhere in CT from 1996-2004, and again from 2006-2022. See this letter from an attorney in the Secretary of the State's office. Unfortunately, without a statewide candidate winning 1% of the vote in 2020 or 2022, Green enrollment is now only recognized in those towns that had a candidate winning 1% in the last two or four years (depending on the town). Voters originally registered Green are now considered Unaffiliated (with an annotation that they tried to register Green).

Where are most of the Green Party members?

According to a January 2022 state voter list (not yet reflecting the post-census redistricting), our party members were distributed by Congressional District:

1st CD (Greater Hartford): 264 = 0.06%
2nd CD (Eastern CT): 458 = 0.10%
3rd CD (Greater New Haven): 261 = 0.06%
4th CD (Southwestern CT): 201 = 0.04%
5th CD (Northwestern CT): 304 = 0.07%
