The Vote Count: Dems At 16,911 Out of 31,553

Democratic Registrar of Voters Butch Dzwonkowski has completed the annual canvas of voters in New Britain and reports the following number of voters on the rolls as of June 10th:

Democrats:  16,911 – 54%

Republicans: 3.164 – 10%

Unaffiliateds: 11,092 – 35%

Other Parties: 386 – 1%

Democratic Chairman John McNamara said DTC members in each voting district will be asked to review voter lists and seek new registrations and conduct outreach to  restore  inactive voters  to the rolls in their neighborhoods.  “Attrition usually occurs from one presidential year to the next but we need to build on gains made in Democratic registrations in 2008 by continuing to reach out to residents to stay on the active list,” said McNamara.

“This is the lethal flaw among rich candidates. They think skills that make for success in business are a template for winning in politics. A man who travels to campaign stops in his Maserati, however, may not understand some of the subtleties of campaigning.” Hartford Courant Columnist Kevin Rennie, “Candidates Regrouping After Party Conventions,”  June 13, 2010, commenting on endorsed GOP Gubernatorial Tom Foley
