What's on the ballot and how to vote in the primary in Connecticut

Even though Connecticut’s primary on Tuesday is attracting the interest of former President Donald J. Trump, the state may be recognised as a campaign fundraising powerhouse that seldom veers from voting Democrats statewide.

Lately, Mr. Trump endorsed the Republican Senate candidate. The winner will take against Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat who has drawn the attention of the former president.

There are several close races on the ballot in addition to the three-way Republican battle.

Here is a reminder of the voting procedures and the issues involved.

Ways to vote

The deadlines for registering to vote in person and submit an absentee ballot request have passed. Connecticut allows for same-day registration for the general election but not for the primary.

To cast a ballot in the primary, you must be a registered member of a political party. Three months before to a primary, the deadline for changing parties is enforced.

The state of Connecticut, which mailed ballots to every voter at the start of the pandemic, no longer allows excused absentee voting. For it to be reinstated, a referendum would be necessary.

How to vote

To find out where you are supposed to vote, go here. By Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time, which is also when the polls for in-person voting shut, absentee votes must be returned, either by mail or in person to drop boxes or neighbourhood clerks.

What issues are up for vote

In order to select the candidate who would oversee elections, Republicans will narrow the field of candidates for the Senate, the House in southwestern Connecticut, and the secretary of state position.

For state treasurer and secretary of state, Democrats will face off in tough primary.

Several intraparty contests for the Connecticut legislature will also be decided by voters.
