DMV set to register CT residents by 2018

Connecticut residents will eventually be automatically registered to vote when they visit the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).



The Secretary of the State's office says it has reached a new deal with the DMV to bring automatic registration to the state by August 2018.



The idea is when eligible citizens apply for a license or ID, they're also signed up to vote.



Officials say they're still working out the details.
