On March 19, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced that the state’s presidential primaries would be moved from Tuesday, April 28, to Tuesday, June 2. Lyme’s Town Clerk has confirmed that all absentee ballot applications presently on file will be honored for the June 2 primaries.
The State of Connecticut has announced that there will be both a Democratic presidential primary and a Republican presidential primary on Tuesday, April 28. Lyme residents who are registered Democrats may vote in the Democratic primary; Lyme residents who are registered Republicans may vote in the Republican primary. Unaffiliated voters and residents who are registered with other political parities are not permitted to vote in either the Democratic or Republican primary. Unaffiliated voters may change their party affiliation to either the Democratic or Republican party in order to vote in the corresponding presidential primary by coming to Lyme Town Hall no later than Monday, April 27, at noon.
This is an important reminder regarding the upcoming Apr. 28, 2020, presidential preference primary. The deadline to transfer party in advance of the presidential primary is Tuesday, Jan. 28. To repeat, Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020, is the last day that an enrolled elector may transfer from one party to another and be eligible to vote in the presidential preference primary of the new party.
