On September 26, the Connecticut Supreme Court issued a one-page order, saying the Republican Party should be listed first on Connecticut general election ballots, this year and for future elections, up to and including the November 2014 election. The dispute hinged on the state’s law that said the order of parties should be governed by how many votes they had polled for Governor.
In 2010, the Republican Party had polled more votes for Governor than any other party. However, the Democrat was elected, because he had the nomination of both his own party and the Working Families Party. The sum of the gubernatorial vote for those two parties was greater than the Republican gubernatorial vote. See this story.
