The Republican was first elected in 1991. \u201cEvery day for the past 22 years I\u2019ve been front and center, and people know where I stand,\u201d Lauretti said on Election Day eve. He said he feels confident the voters will return him to office, and doesn\u2019t treat election season any different than other times of the year. \u201cI feel pretty good \u2014 like I do every day,\u201d Lauretti said Monday evening. 'We've campaigned very hard' His Democratic challenger is David Gioiello, who also ran against Lauretti in 2007. While admitting his campaign is \u201ca long shot\u201d due to Lauretti\u2019s many years in office, Gioiello is hopeful the Democrats can win a few unexpected races \u2014 especially for the Board of Aldermen. \u201cWe\u2019ve campaigned hard and brought out issues, and now we\u2019ll see what happens,\u201d said Gioiello, who also is Shelton Democratic Town Committee chairman. \u201cWe feel we have a good shot,\u201d he said of the Democrats picking up at least one more seat on the Board of Aldermen, which the Republicans now control by a 7-1 margin. \u2018Don\u2019t take anything for granted\u2019 His GOP counterpart, Anthony Simonetti, said the Republicans also have campaigned hard to get the support of voters and are not over-confident of victory. \u201cIt\u2019s like anything else you go into \u2014 you put your pants on one leg at a time,\u201d said Simonetti, who is running for re-election as a First Ward aldermen. \u201cI don\u2019t take anything for granted and I don\u2019t make assumptions,\u201d he said. \u201cI once got beat when I didn\u2019t think I would. \u201cNothing,\u201d Simonetti continued, \u201cis for sure in life \u2014 except death and taxes.\u201d Seeking a 15th term The lone Democratic alderman, Jack Finn, said he feels confident the voters will return him to office. \u201cI\u2019ve been well-received at doors when doing my door-to-door,\u201d said Finn, who is seeking his 15th term in the First Ward. He is the longest-serving alderman in Shelton history, having been first elected in 1985. Finn also is the elected Democratic registrar of voters. He\u2019s hopeful at least one other Democrat might join him on the Board of Aldermen. \u201cThere\u2019s a rumor going around there might be,\u201d Finn said. \u201cIt\u2019s up to the electorate.\u201d Bring ID to the polls Polls are open from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The polling places in Shelton are Elizabeth Shelton School (First Ward), Shelton Intermediate School (Second Ward), Long Hill School (Third Ward), and Mohegan School (Fourth Ward). Voters are being reminded to bring some form of identification with them when voting. A driver\u2019s license will suffice in all cases but if a voter does not have a government-issued photo ID than a bank statement, utility bill, pay stub, Social Security card or other forms of identification are also acceptable. Same-day registration possible For the first time in Connecticut history, Election Day registration is available for any eligible voter. Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said that means any citizen age 18 or older not registered to vote can go to their town or city hall on Election Day and \u2014 with the proper identifying documents \u2014 register and vote on Tuesday. In Shelton, people who want to try to register on Election Day should go to the Registrars of Voters Office at the Lafayette Complex, 54 Grove St. (the former Lafayette School). The Registrars office is not in Shelton City Hall. The state law enacting Election Day registration permits anyone to register and vote in person on Election Day if he or she meets the eligibility requirements for voting in this state and is not already a registered voter, or is registered in one municipality but wants to change his or her registration because he or she currently resides in another municipality. The same-day registration process Those wishing to register and vote on Election Day must appear in person at the designated location and declare under oath that they have not previously voted in the election. They must complete the application for voter registration and provide documents to prove their identity and residence. Once the new voter is properly registered, he or she will be provided with a special Election Day Registration (EDR) ballot and must declare under oath that he or she did not previously vote in the election and then sign an affirmation that is printed on the back of the security envelope. The new voter must secretly mark the ballot in the presence of the registrars or their designees, place it in the EDR envelope, and deposit the envelope in a secured EDR ballot box.
