[Updated] Election Day 2012: Windsor

Where to vote, the list of candidates, and how the town voted in past elections. Check back mid-day for updates from the polling stations.

Updated; 5 p.m.

For the past couple of years, elections have caused people to anticipate just how low voter turnout will be. Such is not the case today as the general election seems to have Windsor voters turning out in droves.

According to polling place workers at John F. Kennedy School, voters were waiting outside the school before doors even opened at 6 a.m. So many voters turned out, workers said, that they were forced to wrap the line in a snake-like fashion through the school's halls.

1,452 votes were cast at John F. Kennedy just after noon, forcing the polling place to call for a delivery of additional ballots to prepare for the large number of voters showing up.

Vote totals were also strong at other polling places, with L.P. Wilson counting 837 votes cast by 1 p.m. and town hall hitting 800 votes at 12:30 p.m.

During the last general election, 2008, Windsor had one of the highest voter turnout percentages with just over 80 percent of registered voters participating.
