About half of Connecticut’s registered voters had cast a ballot by noon Tuesday, thanks to heavy turnout early in the day and an unprecedented number of absentee ballots, according to Secretary of the State Denise Merrill.

About 636,000 of the state’s 2.3 million voters already had voted before the polls opened at 6 a.m. under the provisions of a temporary law that allows every voter to use an absentee ballot for the first time due to a suddenly resurgent COVID-19 pandemic. Nationally, a stunning 99.6 million votes had been cast, according to the U.S. Elections Project.

“We are hearing all across the state a really, really large turnout. And you’re seeing it right here,” Merrill said.

Pointing to a growing number of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, Gov. Ned Lamont on Monday tightened up restrictions for some Connecticut businesses less than a month after he loosened those rules to allow increased capacity at restaurants and performance venues.

Restaurants will now move back to 50% capacity and must close by 9:30 p.m. Takeout and delivery services can continue after the curfew, however. No more than eight people can sit around a restaurant table at a time. Since Oct. 8, eateries have been able to accommodate 75% of their normal capacity.

Personal services, such as hair and nail salons, will be allowed to remain at 75%.

Event venues must limit crowds to 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors. Capacity is capped at 100 people for movie theaters and performing arts centers. And capacity at places of worship is restricted to 50%, or no more than 100 people.

Connecticut reported a 3.4% positivity rate from over the weekend. The seven-day COVID average was 3.6%.
