Turnout is typically low during primaries, and both the Democratic and Republican nominations were already clinched weeks ago, which, with the rain, wind, and cold, contributed to a low voter turnout.

Secretary of the State Stephanie Thomas said her bigger concern was the opportunity to test early voting, which drew 17,000 voters across four days last week.  That’s out of more than 1.2 million eligible Democratic and Republican voters, but Thomas said it was enough to see how early voting worked.

In Stratford 75 Democrats participated in Early Voting.  There was 34 Absentee ballots, and 1 overseas.  There was 12,881 Stratford Democrats eligible to vote.

Republican’s cast 75 early voting ballots and 34 absentee out of 6,323 eligible voters.
