Statement of Secretary of the State Denise Merrill on the Postponement of Connecticut’s Presidential Preference Primary to August 11, the Same Day as Connecticut’s State and Federal Primary

“I support the governor’s decision to move the primary to August 11 to coincide with our state and federal primary. This date change will allow us to make it easier to protect the health and safety of voters and local election officials, prepare for the anticipated increase in demand for absentee ballots, save towns money, and let voters make their voices heard in the presidential primary process, all by holding one primary instead of two.” - Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill
