Traffic was brisk at both the Montville Town Hall and Mohegan Firehouse polling stations at about 5 p.m., with steady streams of people making their way to the voting stations.
By the end of the night, just 27.81 percent of Montvillians registered to vote came out to the polls.
Former Water Pollution Control Authority assistant superintendent Tom McNally, who successfully sued the town for his firing, said last winter he would not seek re-election as secretary of the Montville Board of Education, instead, he chose to run for Town Council as a Republican and member of the Independence for Montville Party.
McNally contacted Patch this evening to say that while he was disappointed with the voter turnout, he remained hopeful and grateful to voters.
“While we await the election results, the overall turnout was low and disappointing, however, it was very encouraging to see all the people come over to the Republican booth (to) wish us well, ask questions and talk with us,” McNally said.
