Election 2015: Statewide voter turnout was almost 33 percent

The statewide voter turnout among registered voters in Connecticut on Tuesday was 32.73 percent, according to a press release from Secretary of the State Denise Merrill.

The town with the highest voter turnout was Prospect, where 58.7 percent of registered voters cast ballots.

The municipality with the lowest voter turnout was Sterling, where only 7.56 percent voted.

Locally, turnout ranged from 45.48 percent in Old Lyme to 17.7 percent in Lyme, where no races were contested.

Merrill called Tuesday "one of the smoothest Election Days in recent memory."

Under new reporting deadlines, municipalities had until 48 hours after the polls closed to submit initial head moderators’ returns to the secretary of the state.

They then have up to five business days to conduct recounts.


The following towns are not included in the map because they did not have municipal elections: Andover, Bethany and Woodbridge. Hartford is not included in the map because of a discrepancy recount. The following towns are not included in the map because they did not submit complete information by November 5: Bethlehem, Brookfield, Coventry, Danbury, Eastward, Essex, Farmington, Middlefield, Portland, Sprague, Winchester and Woodbury.
