Gardner received 5,515 votes on Tuesday, while Young-Kleinfeld recieved 3,865, according to results provided by the Registrar's Office.
Tina Gardner, the current Republican Registrar of Voters, is seeking her eigth term despite not being nomintated by the RTC, according to the Wilton Bulletin. Democratic registrar Carole Young-Kleinfeld is also seeking another term. Both have been urging voters to double-check where they should go to cast ballots on Nov. 6 because of redistricting.
“Every state is going through this same thing, and Wilton did get a significant amount of change in the size of our house districts, which affects our voting districts,” Young-Kleinfeld explained. “We think it’s a change for the better, once voters get used to it.”
“Lots of parents come in concerned about their children, making sure that the child is registered to vote and getting an absentee ballot, almost to the extreme. They are adults and they need to take responsibility for themselves,” Gardiner said.
