Reporting from the Guilford Patch:
Four Connecticut towns, including Guilford, earned the coveted Democracy Cup, which is awarded to cities that saw the highest voter turnout in the state in the 2018 mid-term election.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill will present titles in four categories based on town size—small, mid-sized, large, and city. The winners were Washington (small), Granby (mid-sized), Guilford (large) and West Hartford (city).
“Record breaking voter registration was followed by record breaking voter turnout in Connecticut!” said Secretary Merrill. “Our democracy is healthy, and I will fight to continue to make both registration and voting convenient and without unneeded obstacles.”
