I voted. The machine worked fine. It was a little strange not to have the old machine, but the new paper ballot and scanner were pretty easy to use.
There wasn’t a line. Turnout, apparently, has not been strong today. The number on the machine when I left was 697.
I wanted to post one final map, which shows party registration dominance in certain towns. This can sometimes be a guide for what’s going to happen in local elections, but sometimes not. It actually tracks most closely to voting at the state level, but I thought I’d post it anyway.
One other problem with the map is that it’s slightly misleading–independents/unaffiliateds actually dominate in all towns but a handful. But that map would be a lot less fun and interesting.
Just a few hours until polls close!
