Early Voting To Be Available for April 2 Presidential Preference Primary

This is the first year in history that the State of Connecticut will offer early voting and the upcoming April 2 Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) is the first time that registered voters can take advantage of early voting.  (This primary is the election where voters in a political party vote for the candidate of that party that they would like to be their presidential candidate in November’s General Election.)

Lyme residents who choose to vote during the early voting period will arrive at Lyme Town Hall, check in and be verified as an eligible voter, as usual.  They will complete their ballot at a privacy booth, seal it in an approved envelope and then deposit the sealed envelope in a secure receptacle.  At this point, the ballot has been officially cast and cannot be rescinded.  Early-voting ballots will be tallied with Election Day ballots on April 2.
