BROOKFIELD, Conn. — The rain was not dampening the presidential primary spirit on Tuesday morning in Brookfield as voters began to trickle in to cast ballots for their party favorites.
Eileen Koch and Susan Amlung were staffing a tent set up by the Brookfield Democrats outside the polling place at Huckleberry Hill Elementary School on Tuesday. The group did not endorse a candidate in the race, but members were braving a chilly rain to offer information to voters. Koch and Amlung reported a steady stream of voters at the polling place, one of two in town.
Registered Democrats and Republicans in Connecticut can cast their ballots anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Anyone standing in line at 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Rocky de la Fuente, who petitioned his way onto the ballot and randomly drew the top spot, face off for the Democratic nomination.
Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Donald Trump and Ben Carson will vie for the Republican nomination. (Carson never notified Connecticut that he was dropping out of the race.)
Can't decide who to vote for? "Uncommitted" is also offered as a choice by both the Democratic Party and Republican Party.
