Note to Republicans: you're too late

Ha, ha.
Connecticut's heated Democratic nomination contests for U.S. Senate and governor are beginning to convince more unaffiliated voters to switch their registration so they can vote in the Aug. 8 primary.

"We are seeing an increased number of unaffiliated voters switching to Democratic to vote in the primary," Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said Tuesday.

Several registrars of voters in the New Haven area agreed, saying they are even getting some calls from Republicans asking if they can still change their registrations in time to vote in the Democratic primary.

The answer to that question is no; the deadline for switching from one party to another was May 8.

Unaffiliated voters, however, have until Aug. 7 to change their registration in person at their town or city hall so they can vote in the primary the following day, Bysiewicz said.
I guess Joe's friends can't swtich from Republican to Democrat for the primary...awww, too bad.
