Poll: Are You Registered To Vote?

Due to the power outages cause by Saturday's storm, Governor Malloy has extended the voter registration deadline.

 

On Tuesday, Governor Dannel Malloy signed an executive order that extended the deadline for in-person voter registration in the upcoming election until November 7 at noon.

“The severity of the power outages and other damage from this past weekend’s snow has the potential to disenfranchise thousands of Connecticut voters who are without electricity and even unable to leave their homes,” said Secretary of the State Denise Merrill.

Voter Registration forms are available at your town's Registrar of Voters and online at www.sots.ct.gov.

Mike, you donated a kidney? Maybe you're on a list as a kidney donor? Maybe you have a list of the personal sacrifices you've made for the good of all mankind? And in which branch of the military did you serve?

A colleague asked me today if I won the election, as I am running for 9th district Town Council in Stratford. When I reminded her that Election Day is next week, she said she didn't pay attention to politics and wasn't a registered voter because it is against her religion. She is a Jehovah's Witness.

I vote. Every time. I know that sometimes (more often as I get older) I am forced to vote for a candidate who is nothing more that the one I dislike least. That's just the way it goes. I think that if 100% of our population did vote we would attract better candidates and would live in a better nation. Not voting does not seem to be any kind of solution to our problems or a pathway to a better future.

The American people wont let my sort vote -- they say we were too loayl to the King and the bankers. I may have to move to New Haven and look into it.
