06/26/10 Bysiewicz: At Least 44 State and Federal Primaries on Connecticut Ballot in 2010 - A Few Are Bridgeport Natives

From a Press Release:

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz today officially notified town clerks across Connecticut that at least 44 primaries will be held on August 10th, 2010. Primaries ware taking place for Republican and Democratic voters for statewide offices such as Governor, U.S. Senator, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller, Secretary of the State, as well as Congressional seats, General Assembly, and Judge of Probate. Some communities will also have primaries for Registrar of Voters. When arriving at the polls, Republicans will be able to cast ballots in 21 primaries, while Democrats can vote in 23 primaries. A list of all primaries on the ballot for August 10, 2010 can be found below, which does not include local primaries for offices such as Registrar of Voters or General Assembly districts within one town.

“Now that the petitioning process is complete, I want to make sure voters and local elections officials are fully aware of all the primaries taking place on August 10th,” said Secretary Bysiewicz. “Across the state, numerous primaries will be held on both sides of the aisle. Critical issues such as the economy, the environment and our state budget need to be addressed, so I am urging voters to show up at their polling places and cast ballots in the August 10th primaries to choose the general election candidates for November. Our nearly 900,000 unaffiliated voters in Connecticut should also know that they too can have their voices heard in the primaries by enrolling with the Democratic or Republican party.”

Secretary Bysiewicz is reminding Connecticut citizens that the deadline to register to vote by mail in August 5, 2010. Voting age citizens and 17 year-olds who will turn 18 by the general election can also register in-person at town offices until Monday, August 9that 12:00 p.m. Unaffiliated voters face those same deadlines if they wish to enroll with a party in order to vote in the primaries. Polls will be open on Primary Day August 10th from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
