Merrill: All Connecticut Town Ballots for 2014 General Election Available for Viewing Online

Secretary of the State Urges Connecticut Voters to Familiarize Themselves with the Ballots for Their City or Town

Hartford: With just under two weeks to go before the 2014 general election, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill today announced to Connecticut voters that ballots for all Connecticut cities and towns are now available for viewing online.  Secretary Merrill is also urging the more than 1.94 million registered voters in Connecticut to familiarize themselves with the general election ballots by going online to the Secretary of the State’s website  and following the link to see the ballot in their town.  The direct link to the town ballots is:

“I want to remind the voters of Connecticut that Election Day is around the corner, so now is the time to familiarize yourself with what candidates are running for which offices on the ballot,” said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut’s chief elections official.  “In addition to the individual candidates, there is also an important constitutional question on the ballot for all Connecticut voters that if passed would permit state lawmakers to loosen restrictions on absentee ballots and enact early voting.  Many important decisions at the state and federal level will be made by those who win the elections on November 4th.  I urge every voter in Connecticut to visit our website, see who is running, and familiarize yourself with the ballot you will be using on Election Day.” 

Voters who use the vote-by-phone system are also encouraged to contact their local Registrar of Voters if they are interested in using the preview and practice function of the system prior to Election Day.  On Election Day November 4, 2014 polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. throughout the state.  Voters can check their registration status online and find where their polling place is by visiting  The final deadline to register in-person for the general election is Tuesday October 28, 2014.

COMMENTS follow up from Louisiana governor stumps for Foley post in Wallingford Political Discussion

We had a post over in our Wallingford News and Information group on Facebook that generated some conversation that was better suited for our Wallingford Political Discussion group.

Wanting to preserve the original comments, I screen captured them all and put them into the comments section of the Wallingford Political Discussion post.

There were some reports of being unable to read those posts so I am importing those screenshots into this blog post for the sake of continuity.
