BREAKING NEWS: Midday Wilton Voter Turnout High
Breaking news, Tuesday, November 6, 2:45 p.m.–Wilton voters are turning out at high numbers, according to reports from the Wilton registrars of voters. As of 2 p.m. today, there have been a total of 5,399 voters who have cast ballots at Wilton’s three precincts (and at Town Hall, for Election Day Registration). That number represents 41.8% of Wilton’s 12,952 registered voters.
For comparison, there were 11,482 registered voters in 2014, for the last midterm election. That year there was a 60.51% voter turnout in total. If turnout continues to be as strong this year, Wilton seems to be headed for a higher turnout rate for 2018.
Registrar of Voters Annalisa Stravato told GOOD Morning Wilton that voters were lined up outside polling precincts before they opened at 6 a.m. this morning. She added that precinct moderators at Wilton’s three polling locations reported that there was “high energy” from voters.
Polls close in Wilton at 8 p.m.. For all information about voting locations, candidates and sample ballots, visit our voter guide.
