Preliminary oath: "You solemnly swear that the evidence you are about to give concerning your right to become an elector is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God."
"Those who remain must prove their ability to read by reading at random from the public acts. All eligible are then asked to raise their right hands, while the town clerk rises and administers the following elector's oath:--
"You solemnly swear that you will be true and faithful to the state of Connecticut and the Constitution and government thereof, as a free and independent state, and to the Constitution of the United States; and whenever you shall be called to give your vote or suffrage touching any matter that concerns this state or the United States, you will give it as you shall judge will conduce to the best good of the same, without respect of persons or favor of any man; so help you God."
