Tag Archives: Election Day 2013


Candidates — and their supporters — were out in force early this morning. This crew assembled outside the District 9 polling place: the Westport Library.

Turnout was very light. Then again, it was only 6:30 a.m.

When I noted how quiet the voting area was, someone said, “Well, this is the library!”

The library replaced Saugatuck Elementary School as the District 9 polling place for a complex set of reasons, beginning with the inability of using Kings Highway Elementary for primaries because voters have to walk through the cafeteria. Don’t ask.

And why are ballots cast in the newspaper reading room, not the larger McManus meeting room downstairs?

Because different doors are required for entering and exiting.

Who knew?

Now stop reading, and go vote!
