One More Time For The One That Counts, Tuesday’s General Election

Could Tuesday’s vote finally be the end to this three-season mayoral cycle? This is the vote that counts and a convincing win should be the coda to quite a long, strange trip.

January’s primary redo won handily by Mayor Joe Ganim actually outperformed the first one last September. Five months later more than 70,000 registered voters may participate in a three person field: Democrat Ganim, Republican David Herz and Independent John Gomes.

More than 2,000 electors will cast ballots via absentee, according to returns from the Town Clerk’s Office. Once again the mayor is expected to win the mail-in vote.

Tuesday’s forecast is shaping up as a tasty day to vote with temps in the 50s.
