Notice Regarding Drawdown- Updated 5/17/18
State Dams will be completing a repair to the Pachaug Dam in Griswold this Friday and Saturday (5/18 and 5/19) to protect a seep in the dam spillway to prevent further potential deterioration. Once the work is completed the gate will be closed and Pachaug Pond will refill. We will also close the Glasgo Pond dam gate which was opened to allow for some minor storage upstream of Pachaug Pond so that this work could be completed. Pachaug Pond dam is slated for reconstruction in 2019 so that it meets modern standards. Our hope is that water will be spilling over both Glasgo and Pachaug dams by Memorial Day weekend. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you.

SECRETARY MERRILL: FINAL DAYS TO CHANGE REGISTRATION FOR AUGUST PRIMARY ELECTION
May 14th deadline to change party enrollment in order to vote in “new” party’s primary
Hartford – Enrolled party members have only seven days left to transfer enrollment from one party to another in order to cast a ballot in their “new” party’s statewide primary, Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said today.
May 14th is the last day that voters can change their party enrollment for the 2018 statewide primary, which can easily be done online at: http://myvote.ct.gov/register. Please follow the directions carefully as people without a valid driver’s license will still need to mail their completed registration change to their town election official or to Secretary of the State.
The deadline for new voters and for unaffiliated voters to enroll in a party for the primary is August 9 via mail or August 13 in person. More details available at the election calendar: http://portal.ct.gov/-/media/sots/ElectionServices/Calendars/2018_Election/2018-Calendar-searchable-pdf.pdf
Secretary Merrill said, “Choosing a political party—or deciding to remain unaffiliated—is an important decision. If you are interested in participating in the process of choosing a party’s nominee, then you will have to register with the party in which your candidate is running. If you are already enrolled in a party and would like to change your party enrollment, this is the last week to change your registration.”
The statewide primary will be held on August 14, 2018. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Every year thousands of people enroll in a party or change their party registration. Last year, there were more than 32,000 changes to party registration. In 2016, there were more than 132,000 changes to party registration.
Voters can check their party and registration status at: http://myvote.ct.gov/lookup.
