TUESDAY, April 26, 1:15 p.m.—Wilton’s registered voters have been turning out to the polls for today’s CT Presidential Primary. As of 1 p.m. today, 1,699 voters have cast their votes for the candidates running for their party’s presidential nomination, according to Wilton’s Democratic registrar of voters Carole Young Kleinfeld. That number doesn’t include absentee ballots, which will be added in after the polls close at 8 p.m. this evening.
There are 7,452 eligible registered voters (3,226 Democrats and 4,226 Republicans) in Wilton. As of now, that means there’s been a 22.8 percent turnout, something that Republican registrar of voters Tina Gardner assessed as “not that high.” Perhaps today’s rain has played a factor, or voters are waiting until later in the day to go to the polls—or perhaps that kind of turnout is simply on trend for voting in Wilton. One other consideration is whether there’s been negative campaign-rhetoric overload or dissatisfaction with the field of candidates.
Either way, GOOD Morning Wilton will continue to bring updates during the day, and as soon as figures are available after polls close, we’ll announce how Wilton voted.
