NBC News projects Democrat Hillary Clinton as the winner of the presidential race in Connecticut, but Republican Donald Trump defeated her for the presidency.
Clinton was awarded the state's seven electoral votes, but the result is no surprise for the safely Democratic state.
The last figures the Secretary of the State issued listed the statewide average voter turnout at 50 percent, but that was two hours before polls closed.
Around 30,000 people had used same-day voter registration to cast ballots in the presidential election, according to the Secretary of the State's Office.
