Westwood Updates from the Polls

1:30 p.m. In a conversation with Town Clerk Dottie Powers, she tells Patch that there has been a "steady turnout" all day, with about 40% of registered voters casting their ballots so far. Powers said that over 1,000 ballots were cast at each precinct.

Noting that there were "quite a few" people in line right at 7 a.m. when the polls opened, voting has been steady since but she anticipates a busy afterschool rush at the polls by parents, as well as a busy rush to the polls by people when they get out of work.

"The races are so close, so everyone wants to make a difference," Powers said.

8:45 a.m. The Hanlon School isn't busy at all, but Patch was told that there were about 50 people there voting right as the doors opened at 7 a.m.

8:15 a.m. It's a little bit slow at Precinct 1, located at the Council on Aging. It picks up a bit to a steady pace. There aren't a lot of lines to wait in. As people cast their ballot and leave, another person arrives and takes their place.

Sheehan School reversed the normal position for signing in due to crowds in the am. Voting at 2:15 there was a steady stream but no waiting needed to vote. In all of the elections I've voted in here there were more people coming and going than in other elections
