Residents and voters are busily filling the queues at Ledyard's two polling places Tuesday. District 1 had more than 1,000 ballots cast by 10 a.m. and districts 2 and three had close to that.

One election moderator said there will be no knitting or reading today as she stood by a line that winded back through the entrance and down the sidewalk at Ledyard Center School.

"We've been going very busily," said Republican Registrar Nancy Lozier. "We've been very very busy."

Moderators and poll attendants are working their fastests but voters should be ready to wait in line this election.

There was a problem @ the Ledyard Center School voting site between 6 am & 6:20 am . The wrong ballots were used. Did not have either France or Bowles as choices for State Rep. Had Ed Moukawser . I got a correct ballot but those who voted earlier did not.
