Voter registrars across southwestern Connecticut were busy Monday as a record number of people scrambled to meet the deadline to register to vote.
Officials at Norwalk City Hall were busy trying to keep up with all the voter registration applications they have received.
A record has already been set statewide, as more than 2 million people have registered to vote.
The deadline to register is Tuesday. Registrar offices will be open until about 8 p.m. 
Voters also have the option to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles online to register. This is the first year the DMV is automatically registering people to vote when they renew their license. 
News 12 has been told that voter registration will also be available on Election Day at select locations, but it will most likely be a long wait.
