Rydingsward Qualifies for Democratic Primary for Registrar of Voters Position
Mary Rydingsward qualified on Wednesday for Bristol’s Democratic Primary ballot. Rydingsward needed to obtain signatures of 685 Bristol Democrats in fourteen days. Her campaign team turned in 893 valid signatures. Rydingsward’s bid for the Democratic Registrar of Voters position is now official.
Rydingsward also received support Sunday from Denise Merrill, House Majority Leader and the Democrats’ endorsed candidate for Secretary of State. Merrill walked with Rydingsward door-to-door Sunday on Burton Drive chatting with local residents.
Local Registrars of Voters work closely with the Secretary of State who administers, interprets, and implements all state and federal laws pertaining to elections, primaries, nominating procedures, and voting rights. Merrill’s support, along with that of over 1,100 Bristol residents, is a great start as Rydingsward gears up for her primary campaign.
