In the theater, the last week of rehearsals before opening is called Tech Week, but more commonly called "Hell Week."
"Hell Week" is described on Wikipedia as stressful for both actors and technicians because everyone is learning at the same time. "Everything that goes wrong during a rehearsal is expected to be fixed by the next day," according to Wikipedia.
Tuesday's primary for U.S. Senate will kick off the testing and improvement phase of Trumbull's new four-district voting system, in preparation for the Presidential election in November.
How this dress rehearsal will turn out depends on many factors, including dealing with new polling places, possibly longer lines and how many people actually read their cards the Registrars sent them (something debated before the system's approval).
Then comes the Presidential election in November, when state House and Senate seats and U.S. Senate seats will also be filled. Typically primaries attract fewer voters, and many more people vote for presidents, according to Trumbull's Registrar Office.
Tech week has already begun, with the town's assistant registrars reporting angry calls from voters who don't like their new polling places.
Conversely, commentators on Facebook are accepting of their new locations.
- Sandra Weiner: got my post card - the new polling place is marginally farther from my house but no big thing.
- Christine Marr: Me too Sandra, farther from home but no biggy.
- Susan D'Amato: It's what I expected. Just as close - not too worried. Just concerned about parking.
- Susan Lacovara Levesque: Ours is much better - 5 minutes from home. we were driving completely across town to vote.
