Early Turnout In Westfield Is High

There was a long line of eager early voters this morning at the Moody School polling station. Poll workers and residents alike commented that the number of voters seemed higher than ever.

The line moved quickly, and there was a cheerful and neighborly mood of civic engagement.

Confusion abounds at the South Fire District polls on Randolph Road. The voter lists don't match with one another, thus they are sending people to other voting districts, who are then being told to return to their original voting district. How to discourage voting!!!!

I just received a call from the Secretary of State's office, who has informed me that some of the people at the Randolph Road voting area have been replaced. Thus voting should go more smoothly!

Wow. No wait at the Senior Center downtown, but more voters than usual at 6:30 a.m.

The confusion stems from the fact that in some elections we vote at the Firehouse and in State/Fed elections we vote at Wesley School. Since this is a recent change it is hard to remember. I had to look it up on the Sec of State website myself last night.
