Candidates for Norwalk's top spot hit the polls

The polls are open and voters are casting their ballots throughout southwestern Connecticut.

Among the races, many communities are choosing their top elected official. Norwalk?s Republican incumbent mayor is running for his second two-year term. Mayor Dick Moccia cast his ballot at Nathan Hale Middle School just after 7:30 a.m.

Moccia built his campaign around responsive leadership, pointing to how he's accomplished that over the past two years. He stressed the importance of getting out to vote, and claims he's confident this Election Day.

Moccia is being challenged by Democrat Walter Briggs, who's served as chairman of the city's planning commission. He registered his vote about 9:30 a.m. at the Rowayton School.

Briggs has touted his business background as a reason that he's the best candidate for mayor. He says the city's greatest challenges focus around the school system and the aging infrastructure.
