Did you know that Connecticut was the seventh-highest-voting state in the nation in 2012? In that presidential election year, our voting percentage was about 74%.
But just two years earlier—in the last gubernatorial election in 2010—fewer than 60% of us voted. That means four out of every 10 voters opted out and let someone else make the decisions.
Let’s not let that happen again. Make sure you vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4, and remind your friends, relatives, neighbors, and associates to vote, too.
Tuesday, we’ll elect a governor, lieutenant governor, and state officers; 187 state legislators; and five Congressional representatives (among some other local municipal contests).
Polls throughout Connecticut will be open from 6 am to 8 pm. Do you know where to vote?

On Tuesday, Nov. 4, it’s time to vote to make a difference.
