A new stop...

Normally my next stop is the American Legion Hall on Laurel Hill, but this morning I find myself sitting in the gym at Veterans Memorial School -- the "new" voting pollng place for Norwich residents living in Precincts 5, 6 and 7.

Outside, at the entrance of the school, City Council candidate Jackie Caron sat on the tunk of her car waving to vorers as they arrive. Mayoral candidate Bob Zarnetske took the opportunity to do a little waving himself ae he arrived, a short respite s he shuttles voters to polling places today.

Inside, the3re is a slow, but steady stream of voters arriving..."nothing overwhelming," election officials say with a reference to last year's long, long lines. Clearly, at thisw moment, the number of poll workers greatly outnumber of voters.
