Connecticut morning voter turnout near 17 percent

Hartford (AP) — The Connecticut secretary of the state's office says early ballot counts on Election Day show a voter turnout of nearly 17 percent.

The figures from Tuesday morning show turnout percentages in the teens in most towns. Some towns showed a turnout above 30 percent in the morning, while Wolcott reported that 81.5 percent of its nearly 2,600 registered voters had voted.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is expecting 55 percent of Connecticut's 1.96 million registered voters to cast ballots for governor, U.S. representatives, state lawmakers and state constitutional officers including attorney general.

Unaffiliated voters make up the largest voting bloc — about 818,000. There are nearly 713,000 registered Democrats and about 407,500 registered Republicans.
