WESTPORT — Voters casting ballots in this year’s state presidential primaries April 2 will be making history.

For the first time, early voting will be allowed under an amendment to the Connecticut Constitution approved by voters in November 2022. Along with strong support statewide, the measure won overwhelming backing from Westport voters.

The General Assembly approved details of the new early-voting procedures last year, and the process will go into effect for the first time in the upcoming presidential preferential primaries for both major political parties.

Leading up to the April 2 primary date, early voting will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, March 26-28, in Room 201 of Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Ave., and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 30, in the Town Hall auditorium, according to information provided by the League of Women Voters of Westport. (There will be no early voting on March 29, March 31 or April 1.)

Balloting on primary day, Tuesday, April 2, will be from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Town Hall’s auditorium.

Voters must be registered with the political party in whose primary they plan to cast a ballot.

Candidates on the state’s presidential primary ballots are:

Republican: Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Ryan Brinkley and Ron DeSantis.

Democrat: Joseph Biden, Dean Phillips, Cenk Uygur and Marianne Williamson.

The LWV, which is promoting details about early voting to keep the public informed about this first-time electoral event, also reports that help is needed at the Westport polls during the four additional days of voting.

Anyone interested in working at the polls is asked to contact the Registrars of Voters Office at 203-341-1115.
