Big issue, but a small turnout...

As I mentioned in my last post, Montville Town Hall is typically the slowest in tersm of voter turnout. According to election officials, only about a dozen voters had shown up in the first hour. A bit surprising considering the big issue is the potential change in the way local government will be structured.

"It is a big issue," Helen Karney told me after casting her vote, but declining to say how she voted on the proposal to change from a mayoral-council form of government to a town manager-council form. "I rather not," she said when I asked. "I'm afraid a lot of my friends voted the other way."

Next stop, the Mohegan Fire House where I suspect activity might be a little higher.
