On to Salem...

Salem is one of those small eastern Connecticut communities where voters take their civic responsibilities seriously - and voter turnout is usually one of the highest in the region.

And it appears this year will be no different.

"It's been very good, very good," said Salem Moderator Catherine Teel, who predictecd that total overall turnout will like be in the 70-percent range - and probably in the upper 70s at that.

With just over 2,300 registered voters in town, more than 1,000 had already cast ballots by 4 p.m. And Teel said the expectation is that could be doubled in the final four hours before polls close at 8 p.m.

It's still too early to try and figure out what it means for individual races, but what is safe to say is that voters are taking this year's elections seriously - and with a purpose.
