Galvin: Big Voter Turnout In Massachusetts

TSM

The state’s top elections official says reports from around Massachusetts point to a strong voter turnout, with long lines reported at some polling places.  Secretary of State William Galvin said Tuesday that his earlier prediction that turnout could match or possibly exceed the record 3.1 million voters who cast ballots in the 2008 presidential election was still within reach.  In Boston, more than 26 percent of registered voters had cast ballots by noon, but the total was down slightly from the same time in 2008.  Galvin said most reports of voting problems were relatively minor.

In Billerica, for example, workers at one polling place became concerned that they might run out of ballots. A police car, lights flashing, was dispatched to deliver more ballots and no one was denied a chance to vote.  (Associated Press)
