What's the attraction...

It's hard to say at this point what the final turnout in today's election will be, but it does seem clear that the four-way race for mayor in Norwich is the main draw bringing people out to the polls today.

"Honestly, I don't care if it's right, wrong or indifferent," said Bob Pirie aftrer castring his vote at Veterans Memorial Schoo, "as long as we shake things up."

Pirie didn't want to say who he voted for, but conceded that there were "three or four names" on the ballot that he came to vote for...and those were the candidates that he did vote for.

The stream of voters continues, no great opnslught, but steady. I suspect that turnout might be a bit higher than typical for a local election, but not a recoerd a turnout.
