Plymouth Updates from the Polls
Stay with Plymouth Patch all day as we update this article with news and information from the polls and live election results after 8 p.m.
10 a.m. Precinct 1, Hedge School: The warden would not provide numbers.
10:30 a.m. Town Clerk Laurence Pizer said reporters cannot go in the polling places and it's up to the warden if he or she wants to provide turnout numbers.
Voters, let me know what number is on your ballot! And, what time you voted.
10:45 a.m. Voting at Precinct 3 is slow but steady. Heading down to the Pinehills.
11:20 a.m. Precinct 15, Stonebridge Club at the Pinehills: Plymouth's busiest polling place so far today. Before noon, the warden said they'd had nearly 1,700 ballots cast.
"I've never seen anything like it," the warden said. "I used to work at the precinct in South Plymouth, so this really busy."
I overheard one voter say "it's crowded but moving," and at times it was difficult for some voters to find a parking space.
The Stonebridge Club isn't always easy to find for those who don't live in the Pinehills, but the way was clearly marked this morning with large signs announcing "Precinct 15" with red arrows pointing the way.
1 p.m., Precinct 8, Cedarville Fire Station: Buster Main, Bill Keohane, and Ted Bosen report a steady stream of voters all day.
"At 7:01 this morning there was a line of cars parked along the road," Main said.
3 p.m. Plymouth Patch's Facebook and Twitter followers rallied and posted the turnouts in their precints:
- Laurie Klotzbach Curtis There were 707 votes cast in precinct 8 as of about 20 minutes ago. You can get the turnout on the voting machine when you cast your ballot. Turnout is very high!
- Ron Reilly P11 636 votes at 10:30. I wish people had this much interest in their own town politics
- Douglas O'Roak 515 precinct 9 at 10:45 a.m.
