“Connecticut residents are registering to vote at an unprecedented rate in a non-presidential election cycle, indicating increased interest in politics since President Donald Trump won the White House, analysts say.

According to data from the Connecticut Secretary of State’s office, from the 2016 election through June of this year, 81,908 new voters registered as Democrats, compared to 43,390 who registered as Republicans.

Including those who signed up as unaffiliated and for other, smaller parties, a total of 275,114 people have signed up to vote in Connecticut since the 2016 presidential election.

That’s a surge in voter registration in the state during a mid-term election cycle, when the number of those signing up to vote is usually depressed.”

Remember, if you are unaffiliated and want to have a voice in the Democratic primary this August 14th – be sure to register to vote, you have until August 13th.  Be a part of the change and make your voice heard!
