To be eligible to vote in the presidential primary on Tuesday, April 26, you must be a registered member of the party you wish to vote for. State law prohibits cross voting in another political party’s primary. You can check your party affiliation 24/7 online at: The majority of Granby voters are currently unaffiliated. To gain party affiliation, unaffiliated voters can go online to fill out a voter registration card and check the box marked party enrollment change or fill out a voter registration card and mail it in—be sure to sign and date your card. The State of Connecticut imposes a 90-day transfer or waiting period for those switching from one political party to another political party. If you change your party affiliation from one party to another before Jan. 26, 2016, you will be eligible to vote in either presidential primary on April 26, 2015.
Nov. 3 Municipal Election
Thanks to the efforts of well-trained poll workers and the superb cooperation of the staff at Granby Memorial High School and the Town of Granby Public Works Department, the election ran smoothly. We had a steady day of voting with a 20 percent turnout. A few voters felt very strongly that the signs directing voters to the polls need to be improved and, as a consequence, the registrars will purchase more signs for future voting events.
