One Conn. Town Doesn’t See A Rush Of Voter Registrations On Primary Eve

As candidates in Connecticut make a final push before tomorrow’s primary election, voters had until noon today to register to vote. There was one town that didn’t exactly see a last minute flurry of activity.

Lynn Joyal is the Republican Registrar of Voters in Suffield, Connecticut. She says it was a quiet morning in her office.

“Two people came in a little bit before 11 o’clock and went from unaffiliated to Republican,” Joyal says.

The slow morning surprised Joyal, especially since recently…

“Registration has been steady, it’s just with the primary you’d expect a flurry of people coming in to change from unaffiliated to Republican.”

Tomorrow’s Connecticut primary includes contested Republican races for governor, lieutenant governor and comptroller. One Democratic election which has gathered attention is for State Senate in the 2nd District. Incumbent Eric Coleman, who has been in office for almost 20 years, faces a stiff challenge from Hartford City Council President Shawn Wooden and former Windsor Town Councillor Len Walker
