NORWICH – It’s Election Day in the United States today, and this year’s vote is an important one. With the balance in the House of Representatives on the line, local residents discussed the issues that will determine the choices for them.
The House is currently made up of 201 Democrats, 229 Republicans, and 1 independent. Many political analysts are saying this election will be decided with the war in Iraq weighing heavily on voters’ minds. One Norwich resident seemed to agree. “We need to get the troops back home,” she said. “I’m voting along party lines.”
