The polls were busy this afternoon at the Wexler-Grant School, where Yale students joined other Ward 22 voters to cast their ballots in two primaries.

While there is no aldermanic primary in Ward 1, home to the majority of Yale students, Democrats in Morse, Stiles, Silliman and Timothy Dwight Colleges picked mayoral candidates and joined the political drama in Dixwell as incumbent alderman Greg Morehead faced off against three challengers in today’s Ward 22 primary.
