Unimpressive voter turnout in Stamford so far


STAMFORD — A mere 850 of Stamford’s 12,444 registered Republican voters have cast ballots in today’s GOP gubernatorial primary between Greenwich businessman Tom Foley and state Sen. John McKinney.

That’s a turnout rate of only 6.8 percent as of 12 p.m., according to Republican Deputy Registrar Terry Bivona.

Voter participation has been similarly slow across Stamford’s southern border, according to Hearst political reporter Neil Vigdor. As of 10:30 a.m., less than 5 percent of Republicans had cast ballots in Greenwich, Foley’s hometown.

What do you think will be Stamford’s final voter turnout when the polls close at 8 p.m.? Let us know in the comments.
