Just curious is Connecticut a closed or open primary state?
In Missouri you don't have to be registered Republican or Democrat you just have to say which ballet you want when you go to vote.

1. Connecticut holds a closed primary
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 11:50 AM by Emit
CLOSED PRIMARY OR CAUCUS
In a Closed Primary or Caucus, only registered members of a party may vote in that party's primary: Democrats may only vote in the Democratic primary, Republicans may only vote in the Republican primary and Independents (those not registered with either major party) are not permitted to vote in either major party's primary.

2. I believe you have to register.
Don't know if you can do it on the spot.

3. Noon, the day prior to the election...for indis and dems ONLY.
Republicans had to switch by May 10. Back then, Joe had a 20 point lead.
