Record Turnout Predicted

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, on Colin McEnroe's radio show, just predicted record (for a statewide primary) turnout of between 40 and upwards of 50 percent. I was driving, not typing, so I am paraphrasing from memory, but apparently Bridgeport's turnout has already eclipsed the 1994 primary turnout and we have 3 hours + to go...

I will take the over!

(updated the percentage)

Stamford hit 30% in early afternoon. It should hit 50 I expect with all the ABs. What about the problems reported by channel 8 in New Haven?

There was a voting machine that didn't have Malloy's name in it - we'll see if it was more widespread or just one machine. Apparently that particular machine was quarantined when it was discovered.
