Hartford, CT - Secretary of the State Denise Merrill on Thursday announced that her office has approved the nominating petitions of nine candidates to appear on the ballot for various regional and local offices. Five candidates have qualified for the office of state representative, one candidate has qualified for the office of judge of probate, and three candidates have qualified for the office of registrar of voters.

Petitioning candidates for the November ballot had until August 6 to file their petitions with local town clerks or with the Office of the Secretary of the State. Town clerks have two weeks from the date of receipt of each petition page to file them with the Secretary of the State. However, if petitions are turned in to the Secretary of the State, those petitions are then transmitted to local town clerks, who in turn have two weeks from the date of receipt from this office to file the counted petitions.

The role of the Office of the Secretary of the State in this process is not to examine signatures for validity, but rather to tally the signatures marked as valid by each town in order to produce a statewide or district wide total number of valid petition signatures. A running tally of signatures is not announced; rather, once a candidate has met the required threshold for that office, a letter of notification is sent to that candidate.
