Turnout for election close to last municipal race

When I went to the polling place at Greenwich Town Hall this morning around, I saw more Girl Scouts hawking cookies than I saw voters casting ballots (they’re $4 a box, if you’re interested). But despite that, early numbers show that turnout in town is only slightly lower than for the last municipal election in 2011.

As of 8 a.m., there were about 1,369 voters who had cast a ballot. In 2011, about 1,459 residents had voted by 8 a.m. Let’s see how it shakes out throughout the day. By the end of the 2011 election, 11,942 of the town’s then-33,893 registered voters cast a ballot.

This year, there are 32,105 voters registered in the town.
