A few weeks ago I pointed to five things to watch for in this year’s municipal election results. The election last week did not generate a large wave in one direction or the other. There was a slightly higher turnout than in 2011, but nothing that broke the bank.

A week after the 2013 municipal election, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill announced that 31.43 percent of voters cast their ballots last week.
There were no changes in Derby’s Third Ward Aldermen race after a recount that lasted about three hours Tuesday. The same was true in Ansonia where Republicans swept the Democrats out of power. There were no changes in aldermanic races in two wards or on a referendum question.

As of Monday evening, North Canaan was the only town whose election results were still missing from the Secretary of the State’s website, almost a week after the Nov. 5 municipal elections. They were posted Tuesday morning.

Local elections are much more important than the paltry voter turnout numbers suggest. Although no official turnout statistics are available yet, it seems likely that only about one-third of eligible voters cast ballots during Tuesday’s municipal elections. The vast majority of registered voters apparently saw no value in deciding who will serve as their town’s mayor, or on the city council, or other local offices.
Election Day has come and gone, and the 2013 municipal elections are in the books at last. So what did we learn?

Although the officials numbers are still being tallied by the Secretary of the State’s Office, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy called Connecticut’s first year allowing Election Day voter registration an encouraging step in the right direction.

New Haven elected its first female mayor in the city’s 375-year history. Stamford voters chose a Democrat backed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy over former Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele. And a young staffer from the Republican caucus at the State Capitol defeated a first-term Democrat incumbent mayor in New Britain.
Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is not on the ballot this year, but Republicans are hoping to win enough seats Tuesday to build momentum going into the 2014 gubernatorial election.
