Since yesterday morning, when most of Connecticut woke up to the knowledge that Donald Trump would be holding a rally in Hartford tonight, this state has pretty much gone bonkers. And that’s on both sides of the aisle, so we can anticipate the area surrounding the Connecticut Convention Center to basically be the epicenter of craziness in Connecticut for a few hours.
But now that we’ve had two of the presidential candidates come through our fair state (just last Friday, John Kasich came to speak in Fairfield at Sacred Heart University) – and if no one drops out of the race after this coming Tuesday’s New York primaries, we can basically expect the nuttiness to escalate until our primary on Tuesday, April 26.
Because for the first time in like forever, Connecticut has a primary that candidates, and the media, actually care about.
That got me to thinking – can I even vote in the primary? I honestly didn’t know, because I had no memory if I was party registered. So here’s how I found out:
The first thing to know is that it’s still not too late to get involved – as long as you’re registered to vote by next Thursday, April 21.
But you have to affiliate yourself with a party in order to vote – that’s where the state has this handy site to determine where you’re at in the voting process.
That’s it – you’re good to go!
