Across Connecticut, voters are turning out for Primary Election Day, and here in Stamford only 850 have come out to the polls as of noon, according to the city's registrar's office.

Though numbers reflecting voter turnout today are small, the big race is between Tom Foley and John McKinney -- the two Republican gubernatorial candidates.

McKinney, a lawyer and state Senate minority leader is challenging Foley, a Greenwich businessman and former U.S. ambassador to Ireland.  Foley won the party endorsement this year.  

Foley lost 4 years ago when running for governor against Dannel Malloy, who's seeking reelection.  

One Stamford resident says this primary is key, but only 6.8 percent of registered Republicans are participating.  That's 850, out of 12,444 registered in the city, as of this afternoon.  

Also on the ballot are three Republicans in the race for Lt. Governor: Penny Bacchiochi, a state representative who won the party endorsement, Heather Bond Somers, former mayor of Groton, and Dave Walker, the comptroller general of the United States.  

We'll have a full list of Stamford's results tonight after the polls close at 8 p.m.
