Voting will be from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. District 1 and district 6 vote at the Board of Education building at 35 Leroy Avenue.  District 3 votes at the Noroton Heights Fire Department, 209 Noroton Avenue. District 4 votes at Hindley School, 10 Nearwater Lane. There is one change to voting location Tuesday. Districts 2 and 5 normally vote at the Town Hall gymnasium, 2 Renshaw Road. However, Republican Registrar of Voters John Visi said Districts 2 and 5 will vote at the same address but in a different location. They will now vote in the Mather Senior Center due to better air conditioning quality for poll workers.  The Mather Center is adjacent to Town Hall in the same complex.


If you are uncertain which district you are in, here is an alphabetical list of Darien streets and the corresponding district.

Visi said he expects results to come in quickly Tuesday evening, however he said there are many absentee ballots that need to be counted.
