Election Day is Nov. 7
Registered Wilton voters will have the opportunity to chose the town’s next board and committee leaders during Wilton’s municipal election on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Wilton’s three polling places — one for each voting district — will be open from 6 a.m to 8 p.m. on the day of the municipal election:
District 1 will vote in the Clune Center at Wilton High School, 395 Danbury Road.
District 2 will vote at the Cider Mill School gym, 240 School Road.
District 3 will vote at the Middlebrook School gym, 131 School Road.
A voter look-up service and a map of Wilton’s district division can be accessed from WiltonCt.org/departments/voter/voter4.asp.
There are four contested races this year — Board of Selectmen, Board of Education, Planning and Zoning Commission, and constables. The other races are for:
- Board of Finance.
- Board of Assessment Appeals.
- Zoning Board of Appeals.
- Zoning Board of Appeals alternate.
Information on each of the candidates appears in the voter guide.
A sample ballot can be viewed here.
One must be at least 18 years of age by the date of the election to vote in it. In all cases, voters must be U.S. citizens and Wilton residents. If previously convicted of a felony, confinement and parole must have been completed.
The registrars of voters will hold a special registration day in their town hall office at 238 Danbury Road on Monday, Nov. 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This session is for residents who attained voting privileges — as to citizenship, residency, or age — after the Oct. 31 registration deadline. They may apply in person, with identification and proof of residency.
Members and recently discharged members of the armed forces may also be admitted as electors at any time on that day.
Election Day registration will be available at town hall during polling hours. Both proof of identity and proof of residence are required.
Registered voters who are ill or physically disabled, who are serving in the military, who will be out of town on Election Day, who serve as poll workers in polling places other than their own, or whose religion forbids secular activity on Election Day may vote by absentee ballot.
Town Clerk Lori Kaback will be accepting walk-in absentee applications until 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6. Mail-in applications will also be accepted, but there is no guarantee that ballots mailed back out at this stage will arrive at residences in time for the election.
After all polls are closed on Tuesday, the supervising moderator at each polling location will deliver a print report of the district’s election results to the head moderator, Kim Nabulsi, who will be assisted by deputy moderator Joy Ruterman.
Nabulsi and her team will then aggregate the results from the three districts together with the results of the absentee vote at the town hall annex.
The preliminary outcome of the election will be announced that night and will not include write-in ballots or ballots that may have to be counted by hand. The voting results will then be reviewed by Kaback and Nabulsi the morning after Election Day.
