By the Numbers: Shelton's Election Results

Shelton voters elected republicans over democrats across the board, according the official election results released Wednesday.

There were some slim margins but incumbent GOP Mayor Mark Lauretti garnered 6,876 votes to Democrat David Gioiello's 2,110. It was the second time Lauretti defeated Gioiello.

In total, 8,677 voters cast ballots out of 23,802 registered voters, making the turnout 36.4 percent, said Bob Lally, of the city's Registrar's Office. In 2011, 41 percent of voters turned out, he added.

Lauretti said the turnout may be due to voters not "feeling a need to come out."

"They have other things to be worried about" in Washington, D.C. and Hartford, he said.

Here are the certified election results for Shelton.

Good question, I will check back with the registrar. Absentee ballots, perhaps?
