BETHEL, Conn. — The rain was not dampening the presidential primary spirit on Tuesday morning in Bethel as voters began to trickle in to cast ballots for their party favorites.

Registered Democrats and Republicans in Connecticut can cast their ballots anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Anyone standing in line at 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Rocky de la Fuente, who petitioned his way onto the ballot and randomly drew the top spot, face off for the Democratic nomination.

Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Donald Trump and Ben Carson will vie for the Republican nomination. (Carson never notified Connecticut that he was dropping out of the race.)

Can't decide who to vote for? "Uncommitted" is also offered as a choice by both the Democratic Party and Republican Party.
