Connecticut will hold its primary election on Tuesday. The deadline to register in-person to vote is noon Monday.

It’s the first time that every eligible voter has had the opportunity to vote via absentee ballot without an excuse, because of the pandemic. Though, some voters will still vote in-person. The results are not expected to be in on Primary night, as it will take much longer to count absentee ballots.
