As polls opened at Greenwich High School Tuesday morning, moderators C. Nick Edwards, a Democrat, and Patrick Zimmer, a Republican, said their main concern was turnout.
"This is a time where votes are important," said Zimmer. "We are looking for change and the best thing to do would be to change our elected officials."
Since primaries are held during the height of the summer travel season, the turnout usually low. They were held in September but pushed back to give candidates more time to campaign before the November elections.
As residents voted, Edwards, who has worked the past two elections, commented: "Primaries are commonly light. People are on vacation and forget about absentee ballots."
Zimmer estimated the turnout would be 10%, compared with 50% for general elections.
