Calling All Would-Be Republicans!

January 13, 2012

BETHANY, Conn. – It seems that every state has different voting regulations, and Nutmeggers who want to influence the outcome of Connecticut's presidential primary need to keep some important dates in mind. Pua Ford, a registrar of voters in Bethany and a leader in the League of Women Voters of Connecticut, explains:

"January 24 is the last day that somebody affiliated with one party – say, Democrat or Libertarian, or Independent – may want to change their affiliation to Republican, because those are the people that seem to be having the presidential primary this year."

Voters who are unaffiliated may sign up as Republicans in person at their town hall, and can do so until the last day before the primary election on April 24, or April 19 by mail.

Ford says she's already noticed quite a few cards being mailed in from voters seeking to change their affiliation.

"Very often, libraries and schools will have those voter registration cards around – and of course, the Department of Motor Vehicles has that available."

The variety of places to pick up cards stems from the so-called federal "Motor Voter" law passed by Congress in 1993 to make voter registration more convenient.
