Who’s got this?

From Mayor’s Office:

Individuals who will be casting their vote in person on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd, may do so at their polling location which will be open from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm. Check your voter registration status and location here. Voters should attend the “State” Polling Location Address as provided.

All polling locations have assessed public safety issues as a top priority and will be implementing plans with Bridgeport Police as well as COVID protocols. Each site is properly equipped with a supply of extra protective masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning disinfectants. These COVID safety protocols will be mandatory for staff members and individuals attending at all polling locations:

— Voters must wear a protective mask at all times.

— All attendees must social distance in line 6′ apart and with poll workers as appropriate.
— Please be ready to hand off your valid ID.

Mail-in Ballots: As a reminder, Governor Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered voters to vote by absentee ballot in the 2020 General election. All City of Bridgeport registered voters were mailed an absentee ballot request form with a postage paid return envelope by Secretary of State Denise Merrill. If voters cast their ballot by mail, the ballot form must be submitted within the paid returned envelope and mailed via the U.S. Postal Service. All ballots must be received prior to the 8:00 pm deadline on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020.

Drop-off completed ballots:  In addition to casting ballots by mail, the City of Bridgeport Town Clerk office has provided four (4) secure drop boxes available for voters to submit their ballot; one drop box in front of the Margaret Morton Government Center at 999 Broad Street, one ballot box is located in front of City Hall 45 Lyon Terrace, another in front of Fire House Engine 10 on 950 Boston Avenue and one adjacent the Fire House on the corner of Ocean Terrace & Osborne Street. Voters may submit their ballots in the drop box at any time before the 8:00 pm deadline on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020.

All ballots for the General Election must be properly cast whether in person, via ballot box, or by mail, by 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020<

From League of Women Voters Connecticut:

Election Day is coming up this Tuesday. Are you just now getting the time to start thinking about voting in this year’s election? Have you suddenly realized that you have questions but don’t know who to ask?

The League of Women Voters of Connecticut has compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we have received over the last few weeks. You may have some of the same questions, like these:

If I put my absentee ballot in my town’s drop box on Election Day will it be counted? Yes, but perhaps not until the next day, November 4th. All drop boxes will be locked at 8 pm and cannot receive any additional ballots.

What recourse do you have if someone bothers you at the polls? Contact the Elections Moderator inside the polling place for any trouble inside or out, they have the authority to contact local law enforcement and if necessary, the Secretary of the State’s office. No electioneering is allowed outside a polling place inside the 75-foot marker. And voter intimidation of any kind is a felony in Connecticut.

How do I track my absentee ballot? Use the lookup tool under the “Am I registered?” question on the SOTS website. Here is the direct link:

If I’ve moved recently and not changed my address with the Registrar, should I just go to my old polling place? If you have moved within the same town you are not a new voter, but you may have to go to a different polling location. Once there you can fill out a registration card with your new address and be added to the voter list.

You can find all the FAQs at and can check for your questions. If you don’t see your question in the FAQs, you can ask the League of Women Voters of Connecticut directly at

If you are looking for more information about the candidates on your ballot visit and you will find general information about voting on our website.

Remember that the polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.  Be sure to vote!



  1. Everyone thought that George W. had that “deer in the headlights” look. Biden looks like a deer that was already struck by the car but didn’t die yet!!! Lol.
    It’ll all be over soon- one way or the other.
    It should be “the economy stupid” but who knows.

    1. Really???!!!!
      Well then he’ll be sharing a nice prime dry aged steak OR a even better with Hunter. Along with a nice bottle of Trump Cabernet which I am actually having tonight with my prime.

  2. Pretty soon Trump will be a Russian oligarch with a Russian passport (despite US extradition demands/sanctions) — and/or after he’s been ensconced for a few months in a remote dacha as a guest of Putin, or some other oligarch, it will be decided that he’s a liability to the oligarchy and he’ll pass into the next world, at said dacha (via the “Down” escalator), after “taking ill in his sleep and failing to awaken in the AM” — a la Lenin, Stalin, et al….

    In any event, we’re going to get stuck with the bill for emptying/disinfecting the White House for occupancy by the Bidens, even as we attempt to extradite POTUS 45 and Company from Russia and force the Russians to return Air Force 1 to the the US government..

    1. I don’t click on links so I’ll have to miss you humor, sarcasm, racism, or idiocy of whatever it may be that you are trying to convey. But I know you will have voted the “party” line because you are to astute to vote for a lost soul such as Biden.

      1. Rich, the link just calls into question your blatant ignorance and racism, where rioting and looting is a lot worse than the killing of innocent Black women and men. Typical right wing zealot who follows the dictate of a certified asshole who turned America into the laughing stock of the world. How do people you know look you in the face without throwing up in their mouth? Just asking for a friend.

          1. Don I saw your comment below but there was no choice to be able to reply under it but it just hit me!! We met before. You were walking near the west side firehouse many years ago remember?!! Yeah you had your pants hanging down around your hips and your underwear was showing halfway. I told you to pull your pants up so the school kids weren’t traumatized and you called me a racist for that remember!!!!????
            Small world!!!

  3. Well, Lennie, you called it. Who is your horse? If anything informative has come out of the era of Trump, is our political system is a sham. This so-called Democracy is based on emotion and sentiments. The easiest thing to be manipulated. Because, if anyone truly believes Trump is making any decision regarding the country I have some steaks I want to sell you. He is not even doing his own twitters. They are located on the same page as the Ionic breeze and the shake weight. LOL SMH.

    I mean black people, nothing says change like electing a 70-year-old white male who’s been in public offices for 50 years, who apposed integration, busing, and help construct a crime bill that disproportionally incarcerated blacks, but vote Joe. 🙂
    So rest to sure, it’s more about party philosophy, and the D’s were the party of slavery, segreation, and Jim Crow. To be fair, even Obama evolved on issues though. 🙂

    That being said, I don’t see Trump winning though, I don’t see his usefulness. Racial issues have been on the minds of Americans that have been suppressed under 8 years the D’s of Obama. Those manipulating duly elected pacifice has be over as well.

    For the most part, Trump accomplished what he set out to do in his 2016 pledge, except for repealing Obama’s Care. Which is the only thing he actually has been running on in 2020 other than keeping America Great, But let’s not forget, if the R’ truly wanted to repeal it they could have when they control all three branches of government. I guess if they, R’s, treated it like the lasted Supreme Court Justice. Well. JS

    The R’s can’t have it both ways and the D’s can’t hide from it, calling for a private insurance system yet not requiring employers to provide insurance to their employees, If they are not paying for it for their employees they surely are not paying them enough to buy it themself. But insurance is only small piece of the puzzle. The treatment in the industry itself has become, what can be said terrorist organization, on who and how well someone is treated. How many people have suffered and died because of ill treatment at the hand of “terrorist”? But nothing comes close to the Hell that awaits them for their evil acts. for they know. While Biden will move the needle on heath care.their souls are in their own hands, and the team that say hooray for. JS

    That being said, I am betting on lucky number Slevin. Bam I am out of here. Good luck.
