NORWALK, Conn. — Only a couple of new voters registered in Norwalk during Saturday's state-mandated special registration session, which took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at City Hall.
Voters can continue to register in person at City Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Oct. 30, Registrar of Voters Karen Doyle Lyons said.
She said 1,049 new voters have registered in Norwalk since Oct. 1, a high number that is attributable to the upcoming presidential election. She also said many voters have switched party affiliation, although the department doesn’t keep track of the number.
