‘Citizen Observers’ share their voting stories from around the state

West Hartford Town Hall ballot box.

West Hartford Town Hall ballot box.

On Election Day we do a show where we ask people across Connecticut to do a simple thing: Go vote in your town before 1 p.m. Then call us between 1 and 2 p.m. and tell us how it felt, what you saw, whom you spoke to. Say whatever you want to say about the experience of voting.

This hour we hear from Citizen Observers about their experiences at the polls.
