CT Working Families’ Primary Voting Guide

Voting Guide 2

The municipal primaries will take place on Tuesday, September 14 – so now it is the time to make plans to vote. 

Here is the list of all the WFP-endorsed candidates in this primary:

  • Bridgeport: Tyler Mack (131st district), Dasha Spell (132nd), Aikeem Boyd (133rd), Wanda Simmons and Victoria Majewski (139th) for City Council seats in the Democratic primaries, and Joseph Sokolovic, running for the Board of Education, in the Republican Primary.
  • Hamden: WFP has endorsed Laurie Sweet for the Hamden Legislative Council.
  • New Britain: We endorsed State Representative Robert “Bobby” Sanchez for Mayor.
  • Norwalk: WFP is endorsing Tyler Fairbairn and Jenn McMurrer, candidates for district C at the Common Council.

Here is our checklist to prepare to vote Tuesday:

  1. Polls are open from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm. If you’re standing in line before 8:00 pm, you must be allowed to vote. Plan ahead to ensure that you have time to vote!
  2. Click here to confirm your registration and find your polling place. If you’re unregistered, you can still register on Election Day. In Connecticut, you must be registered in a major party to vote in that party’s primary election. Click here to find your town’s Election Day Registration location.
  3. Bring your ID if you can. Although it’s not required to vote, it’s better to bring it along in case a poll worker asks for it. You have the right to demand a provisional ballot to ensure your vote gets counted – let them know!
  4. Know your rights! Click here for the ACLU’s voting rights guide. If you experience problems or intimidation, report it to the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
  5. Forward this email to your friends and ask them to vote WFP!

In these final days before the election, you should also join the WFP Volunteer Squad to support progressive candidates across the state! We have phone banks and canvassing coming up this weekend and on election day. Make Click here to sign up for volunteer shifts.

Remember: the work doesn’t end this next Tuesday, September 14. We have a general election to fight for — and win — to ensure that we built a Connecticut for everyone, not a wealthy few.
