Darien voter turnout continues at high rate

The polls have been opened since 6 a.m. and election officials are reporting that more than 7,000 residents, or more than 50 percent of registered voters, have cast their ballots as of 7 p.m.
As one Darien resident pointed out, the amount of advertising was a factor in her desire to vote.
"There was a lot of publicity and I think it got a little ugly at times," Cindy Hampton said. "We need some fresh blood because something needs to happen."
Ted Davey voiced a similar sentiment to Hampton.
"The opportunity for change is always good," Davey said.
One resident was just glad to see more people voting.
