Letter: Wilton Asks Help Publicizing Polling Sites

WILTON, Conn. ? The following is a letter from Wilton Registrars Tina Gardner and Carole Young-Kleinfeld.

To the Editor,

With the help of Wilton’s dedicated elections workers, the Department of Public Works, Fire Department, and school custodial staff, last week’s primary election for the Democratic and Republican Senate races proceeded smoothly, even though voter turnout was lower than anticipated. However, after the town’s redistricting following the U.S. Census, many voters from both parties found themselves in the wrong polling place.

Wilton’s Registrars are seeking ideas for how to reach out to voters about their new polling places before the November Presidential Election.  So far, they have provided: 

• Postcard notifications — twice — to each Wilton household noting their correct polling place — in effect for all primaries and general elections until our state’s next redistricting in 10 years.

• Large-scale maps at the Wilton Library, town hall, and senior center and an interactive map on the town’s website.  

• A Voter Look-Up site on the town’s website and the Secretary of the State’s website.

The registrars plan to meet with local organizations, send a third notice to Wilton households, and continue to work with the local press to prepare voters for the upcoming Presidential election. They welcome suggestions from residents and community organizations for making the voting process as easy and effective as possible. Please contact the registrars at the Wilton Town Hall either by e-mail at registrars@wiltonct.org or at 203-563-0111.
