SHELTON, Conn. — Some Republican voters in Shelton will head to the polls Tuesday to pick a candidate for the fall election for the 113th House District.
The Republicans endorsed Jason Perillo, the incumbent, but he is being challenged by fellow Democrat Ruth Parkins in the primary.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9.
Connecticut has an online polling place locator tool that can be accessed through www.myvote.ct.gov . Voters only have to type in their address in order to find the location of their local polling place. A direct link to the polling place locator is here: http://portal.ct.gov/where-do-i-vote.aspx .
The 113th House District covers part of the northern part of Shelton along the Housatonic River. The district’s primary is one of 10 Democratic and two Republican primaries happening for statewide office.
Secretary of the State Denise W. Merrill reminds voters to bring acceptable forms of identification to the polls. A driver’s license will suffice in all cases but if a voter does not have a government issued photo ID then a bank statement, utility bill, pay stub or other forms of identification are also acceptable. Voters should go to www.myvote.ct.gov see a complete list of acceptable forms of voter identification.
“ Myvote.ct.gov is the one-stop shop for all your voting information. Please check the portal to make sure your registration is up to date and to find your local polling place as well as get any other election information," she said. "And, most important, if your party is holding a primary in your town, don’t forget to vote.”
Members of the public should use the state’s 866-SEEC-INFO hotline or email firstname.lastname@example.org if they encounter any problems at the polls. The hotline and email address will be monitored throughout the day by the State Elections Enforcement Commission and the Secretary of the State’s office.
