FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Fairfield University and the Town of Fairfield have announced that the University will host same-day voter registration and voting on Election Day, Nov. 8.
All Fairfield residents who plan on registering then voting on Election Day can go to the University’s Barone Campus Center starting at 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. The campus is located at 1073 N. Benson Road, Fairfield.
Those registering on Election Day must be a U.S. Citizen age 18 or older; reside at an address in Fairfield; must not have voted in the Nov. 8 election from a different address; and must not have been convicted of a disenfranchising felony (or must have completed incarceration and parole).
“University students make up more than three-quarters of the adults in Fairfield who aren't registered to vote,” said Matt Waggner, Town Of Fairfield's Registrar Of Voters. “And with so many on-campus residents not having a vehicle, bringing registration services to the campus seems like a natural fit.”
