Primary: Connecticut is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Though parties decide who may vote in their primary election, the primary is considered closed as neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican Party allow any voter but those registered with their party to vote.[1]

Voter registration: To register to vote in the primary, voters had to register either by noon on August 11, 2014, or on election day at designated Election Day Registration locations. For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 28, 2014 (must be postmarked or received by a voter registration agency by the 14th day before an election). However, voters could also register in person with the relevant Registrar of Voters by the 7th day before the election.[2][3]
