The final four...

We've moved northward to Canterbury where, in about 35 minutes, election officials here will begin the recount of ballots cast in last week's 2nd Congressional District race. It is anticipated the recount should move relatively quickly since there were just over 70 absentee ballots cast. The hand counting of the absentee ballots has slowed the process for many communities.

Ashford began recounting its ballots at 5 p.m. Chester is also scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. tonight. Somers will be the last community to complete the mandatory recanvassing.

Unofficially, it appears Democratic challenger Joe Courtney is holding a 91-vote advantage over three-term Republican incumbent Congressman Rob Simmons with these final four towns to go.
