Not every problem is a bad one...

At the polling place nexgt to the Pachaug Fire Station in Griswold, there is a bit of a problem -- parking. The site has roughly 13 parking spaces, with more than 3,000registered voters in the district, so parking is at a premium. And turnout is heavy. By 10:30 this morning, more than 450 voters had already cast ballots.

At Town Hall, the second voting poll in town, better than 10 percent had turned out by 11 a.m.

"It's a good turnout," said Town Hall moderator Joe Lussier, a 15-year veteran of town elections. "It's been very good."

And that is a good sign for what should prove to be an interesting race for first selectman today.

Now ity's time to head back into Norwich, make a quick stop in Taftville and then into the office for meeting before hitting the road again later this aft3ernoon.
