Many voters expected to turnout today

HARTFORD - Connecticut Vote 2010 is here.

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz says she expects close to 60 percent of eligible voters to turnout today.

Bysiewicz says clerks in the state's larger towns and cities have received more absentee ballots than they usually receive for midterm elections.

More than two million people are registered to vote in Connecticut.

Connecticut voters will pick the next governor, choose a new U.S. senator and decide whether Republicans gain any of the state's five congressional seats, currently held by Democrats.

Bysiewicz says signs reminding voters to check both sides of their ballots will be posted in polling places.
