Did you vote today?
You have until 8 p.m.
We have reporters in Ansonia, Derby and Seymour. We’re linking to the Shelton Herald for Shelton race results.
We’ll post results on our Facebook page, and then publish in-depth wrap-up stories here on ValleyIndy.org.
At least, that’s our plan.
Elections are unpredictable. Close races could result in long wait times.
Sit back, relax, and thanks for your support!
