Sen. Chris Murphy Declared ‘Inactive Citizen’ in Home State of Connecticut

The November absentee tally cast by Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy (D) was not counted, since he was stated an “non-active voter” given that he offered his home in the state.

CT News Junkie reported Murphy really moved with his family from Connecticut to Washington, DC, not long after his election to the Senate.

In September, Murphy offered his Cheshire house and after that signed up to enact Old Lyme, where his parents own a house in the seasonal neighborhood.

CT News Junkie continued:

Cathy Carter, the Republican Registrar of Voters in Old Lyme, stated Monday that they sent out Murphy a notice asking him to validate his citizen application after he registered to vote in September. However the notice was returned by the U.S. Postal Service and there was no forwarding contact number or contact info on the card.

There is a space on the voter registration card to indicate you want communications from the registrars to be sent to another address.

Carter held up a folder at least 3 inches thick of voters who were moved to the non-active voter list this year for stopping working to respond to the notice.

In November’s local elections, Republican Politicians won all the seats on the council and the board of education in Old Lyme.

” It’s preventing my vote didn’t end up counting,” Murphy told CT News Junkie, after his registration was gone back to the active voter list. ” I’ve learned a lot about active and inactive citizens.”

According to the report, Murphy said he continues to look for a Connecticut house in the greater Hartford area, which, when he finds one, he now knows how to register to vote to ensure his vote will be counted.

Nancy Wyman, chairwoman of the Democrat Party, defended Murphy.

” The Senator has a young, growing family and they are moving to be closer to household here in Connecticut,” she stated.
