Click here for the latest updates on Election Day 2013 in Milford.
This Election Day in Milford, there are more unaffiliated voters – those residents who don’t align themselves with a political party – than there are Democrats and Republicans combined.
Latest figures show Milford has 16,636 unaffiliated voters, 9,251 registered Democrats and 7,051 registered Republicans.
That means going into today’s municipal election, unaffiliated voters outnumbered registered Democrats and Republicans by just over 300 residents.
It’s been like this “for years and years,” Democratic Registrar of Voters Antoinette Crocco Carey said Tuesday.
You can usually add up the registered Democrats and registered Republicans and that’ll be the total of the unaffiliated voters, she said.
The Democratic registrar couldn’t say if the representation was unique to Milford or if it was comparable to other municipalities.
