On Election Day, New Haven voters are stepping up and taking an active part in this historic day.

As of Monday night, voter registration in New Haven had reached a record-breaking 71,371, marking the first time in years that there have been more than 70,000 active voters in the Elm City, according to a press release sent out Monday by the Democratic Town Committee.

New Haven is not the only city in Connecticut to boast such high numbers. The entire state displayed a huge increase in the number of voters, adding 200,000 registered voters since the beginning of the year.

In September, New Haven counted only 62, 931 voters.
