Two Norwalk residents on today’s CT primary ballots

NORWALK — Local Republicans and Democrats headed to the polls Tuesday to determine who from each party will be on the November ballot for some of the state’s top elected offices.

For the first time in city history, Spanish-language ballots are available, Norwalk City Clerk Rick McQuaid said.

“The election in 2018 is a totally different bird than this year’s election. In 2018, we had gubernatorial primaries in both the Democratic and Republican parties,” McQuaid said. “Candidates work very hard to get their messages out and get voters to the polls, but they are very tough in a primary.”

The 13 polling places in the Norwalk legislative district saw a total of fewer than 700 voters as of 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to Democratic Registrar of Voters Stuart Wells.

As of 8 am, 223 Norwalkers had voted, and by 10 am, the number had risen to 668, according to Wells. At noon, voter turnout was 1,223
