Greenwich residents will be able to have voting results e-mailed to them on Election Day under a new service provided by the Registrars of Voters. The reporting system was tried on an experimental basis for the August primaries. On Election Day, participants will get turnout reports plus district-by-district results.
Residents and other news junkies can sign up for the automatic e-mails by entering their e-mail address at the registrars' official Web pag e. "We just completed testing of the system so people can sign up to receive these turnout reports as they come in," said DeCaro. "We tried it out in August during the Republican Primary and it was well received."
Those who sign up can expect "voter turnout reports" while the polls are open counting the number who cast ballots at each of Greenwich's 21 polling districts. When the polls close, officials will send out preliminary results from absentee ballots and the unofficial results from various districts as moderators bring the results to Town Hall. Final tallies will be sent out Nov. 3 when results have been finalized in conjunction with the Town Clerk.
Residents who sign up needn't worry about their inboxes being flooded in the days following the election. DeCaro said, "A recipient can expect to see 10 e-mails or more on Nov. 2, but that is the only day this year we will be using the system."
