NEW BRITAIN â€“ Itâ€™s Election Day and there are still about four hours left until polls close.
Democratic and Republican supporters are spread out at the cityâ€™s 15 polling places, hoping to sway any on the fence voters their way.
Lourdes Nunez, a poll worker at Slade Middle School (Ward 1, District 15), said the election location had been pretty busy, save for a few lulls.
â€śWe even had a few people waiting before 6 a.m.,â€ť Nunez told The Herald around 3 p.m.
This is the first election poll workers are using Poll Pad, a technology-based system that makes monitoring voter check-in easier. Nunez said the rollout of the technology has been smooth at Slade.
â€śItâ€™s very easy, a three-year-old could do it,â€ť Nunez joked.
Polls are still open until 8 p.m.
Check back for updates and results later this evening.
