The time has officially come to cast your vote but there are a couple things to keep in mind for today. The polls across the state have officially opened and will stay open through 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
What you need to bring is a Connecticut driver’s license or Connecticut I.D. or anything that shows that you live at your residence.
The most closely-watched race in our state is surely the race for governor.
Bob Stefanowski is heading down to Fairfield county Tuesday morning, then he’ll be back in Madison where he lives by early afternoon to vote here at the senior center.
This will be the last day of the Rebuild Connecticut Road Tour. That’s what Stefanowski has called his tour of the state over the past couple weeks. Fairfield County is not only the most populous county in Connecticut, but also has the most republicans, so he is hoping to get plenty of them out to the polls.
It’s also the county that makes the most money, and Stefanowksi’s signature campaign policy is that he wants to get rid of the state’s income tax. He is also completely against the government putting mandatory tolls on the highways. His solution to help the state transportation infrastructure is to private some of it. he would like to see a private company put in special toll lanes that people can shoes to take in order to get around traffic on the non-toll lanes.
He also wants to switch the expensive state pension system to something more like a 401K. In the final debate Monday, he was asked to rate Governor Dannel Malloy on a scale of 1-10. He said negative 5.
He’s hoping plenty of other people think so poorly of the Democrat who has been in office the past 8 years, that they will not want another Democrat in there for the next 4.
