Press release from Fred DeCaro, Greenwich Republican Registrar of Voters:
As Registrars of Voters, we love the excitement that comes with every primary and election. Of all the elections we administer, the Presidential Primary however, is the day when tensions run highest if people think they are registered in a particular party, and then find out they are not.
The laws of the state of CT only allow members of the Democratic or Republican parties to vote in their respective primaries.
Please, check by visiting our website at https://www.greenwichct.gov/
If you want to change from Republican to Democrat or vice-versa for the Primary, by Connecticut law the deadline passed on January 28th. If you are a Democrat, your only option is to vote in the Democratic Primary. Likewise, if you are a Republican, you can only vote in the Republican Primary.
If you are not registered in any party you are Unaffiliated, and you may register in either party and vote in its primary. Please go to https://www.greenwichct.gov/
Please, take action now so that you are not surprised and disappointed on April 28. There is no Election Day Registration for a primary. It’s important you check your registration in advance.
In addition, please be advised that we are closely reviewing all of the news regarding COVID-19. And we are participating in weekly calls with the Secretary of the State. At this point, the Democratic and Republican Primaries are still on. We are focused on appropriate social distancing, best practices for sanitizing surfaces, and continuing to make your voting experience a pleasant one.
