HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Voters are facing a Tuesday deadline to register to cast ballots in the Connecticut municipal primaries that will be held Wednesday.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill says voters who aren't already registered have until noon Tuesday to register, and it must be done in person with town clerks or registrars.
Primaries are scheduled in 23 cities and towns across the state Wednesday, including Bethel. They aren't being held on a traditional Tuesday because of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana.
Registered Republicans in Bethel will be voting for a First Selectman candidate to challenge Democratic incumbent Matt Knickerbocker in November. The GOP endorsed candidate is Pat Rist, Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Will Duff, the First Selectman candidate two years ago.
State law prevents a primary from being held on a day when a religion forbids secular activity.
