The Courant reports that after a lengthy debate the House has passed Election Day registration by a vote of 81-65. About 30 Democrats broke ranks with their party’s leadership over the bill.
The bill will move on to the Senate. Gov. Rell doesn’t seem to have a firm opinion on the bill yet, according to CTNJ, though her predecessor vetoed a similar bill in 2003.
One thing learned in the Courant article: the dead are still apparently registered to vote in Waterbury, according to Rep. Selim Noujaim.
