Senator Duff Calls on Republican Registrar to Resign

NORWALK, CT – Today, Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement calling on Norwalk Republican Registrar of Voters Karen Doyle Lyons to resign:

“‪Republican Registrar of Voters Karen Doyle Lyons must immediately resign and remove her name from the 2020 ballot. Her comments on Facebook are racist, lack moral leadership and are extremely concerning in the context of her current position as an election administrator. I’ve long been concerned about her ability to conduct fair elections because of her improper views of voter identification laws. Norwalk voters would be rightly concerned about the August 11 primary and November 3 elections if Mrs. Doyle Lyons has a role. Turnout for the general election is expected to be very high this year and voters need to have confidence about the execution of a free and fair election. Mrs. Doyle Lyons has shown what’s in her heart and voters surely will not want her to use the power of her office to turn that into reality.”
