Updated, 3:10 p.m.

As of 2 p.m., 5,711, or 48 percent of, Wilton residents have voted, according to Democratic Registrar Carole Young-Kleinfeld. That is down from the 6,300 people who voted in 2008 by 2 p.m. 

The 7-8 a.m. hour was the busiest today, Young-Kleinfeld said. Eight-hundred people came out to vote, which is also lower than 2008. By that same hour, 1,031 Wilton residents came out to vote that year.

Young-Kleinfeld added that both Registrars have already voted and are reporting no lines at the polling locations, but there still seems to be a bit of confusion as to where residents should go to vote because of redistricting.

Updated, 2:48 p.m.

Patch caught up with Tom O'Dea, the Republican candidate for the 125th District race, at New Canaan High School where he had a table set up to greet voters. He told Patch that he had been up since 4 a.m. to get in some last-minute campaigning but remains "excited."

"I think we've run a postive campaign about we plan to do to fix some of the fiscal problems up in Hartford and I think we've sent a positive message that we're going to do good things," he said. "I look forward to winning and representing Wilton and New Canaan."

Maybe Wilton needs new Registrars who would do a better job getting the word out about redistricting.
