Gov. Lamont reviewing whether to delay Connecticut primary
Gov. Ned Lamont is reviewing whether to delay Connecticut's presidential primary that is currently set for April 28.
The Stamford Voter Registrar's Office is already cleaning off the materials election moderators will use amid coronavirus concerns.
Local election leaders say they are having a hard time finding enough poll workers to volunteer.
"They're saying they're too nervous to work, to go to the polls and do that, even though we told them we'll supply them with gloves and so forth and sanitizer and all that," said Lucy Corelli, the Stamford Republican Voter Registrar.
To cut down on in-person crowds, the secretary of the state wants to relax absentee ballot rules, but Lamont's office says it is reviewing delaying the whole primary.
State officials will hold a call with all local voter registrars to figure out what to do.
