Yes = 1,700
No = 1,150

$1.8M Override: PASS

Yes = 1,650
No = 1,200

Total Registered Voters = 19,000
Total Votes = 2,850
Percent = 15%

My prediction,

All the yes voters will disappear right after the results and will be seen driving past voting locales as they run errands or head to ball games during the next election.

"The town clerk's office reported that 52 percent of Lexington's 20,076 registered voters came to the polls for the special town election."

Providing U-25's efforts manages to inspire this sort of turnout from "Tewksbury's Walking Dead", the override passes with ease....otherwise, it fails by a 200/300 vote margin if voter turnout stays in the typical 15/19% range....

So let it be said, so let it be written...

The rain will most likely keep a lot of voters from voting. I think the vote will be close-very close. I am leaning towards the vote failing. I guess time will tell.
Whatever the outcome, I am hopeful that we will have an unprecendented turnout. If that happens, then I might actually feel like their is HOPE for the future of our Town!

Slow at 2A -- folks there say more people over age 50 are showing up than people under age 50.

dougsears,

That's because the poll workers only recognize people their own age (people over age 50).

At 4 and 4a at 2:15, 300 on 4a side!!!!!!!!! Terrible, I'd better not hear any moaning, no vote, no comment!!!! It is hard to believe that sooooo many people bitch and complain yet when they have the chance to exercise their right to vote they don't show up....I'm getting ready to start looking elsewhere for a community that cares....
