Very busy...

Nearly every privacy booth at the Mohegan Fire Station was filled, the line of voters at the door waiting patiently to move up to the tables to check in. And this, according to election officials, is "slow." When the polled opened this morning, the line was out the building into the parking lot.

Moderator John O'Keffe said at 9 a.m. the polling place had seen about a 21 percent turnout for the day. O'Keffe wsaid it's been the busiest he's seen in years....and he's being doing this for more than 25 years. It's the busiest I've seen so far this morning since leaving East Lyme.

No doubt it is the presidential contest that is the big drawn here. This is one polling places where voters have no choice in terms of the General Aeembly contests. State Sen. Ed ith Prague, D-Columbia, and state Reps. Kevin Ryan, D-Montville, and Tom Reynolds, D-Ledyard, all of whom represent Montville's Districts 2 and 5, are running unopposed.
