NORWALK - The municipal election is days away, and local officials and candidates are getting ready for what they expect will be a huge turnout at the polls.

Norwalk Republican Registrar of Voters Karen Doyle Lyons say that Election Day preparations are in full-swing, with equipment heading out today to more than a dozen polling locations throughout the city.

The race for Norwalk mayor is between incumbent Republican Dick Moccia and Democratic challenger Harry Rilling, the latter of whom spent the morning with voters, encouraging them to head to the polls.

Mayor Moccia says he wishes more people would vote because it is important for them to make sure their voices are heard.

Officials say anyone in Connecticut over age 18 who is not registered to vote can still head to the polls. For the first time ever, they will be able to register on Election Day at their local registrar's office.
