It’s not an extravagant turnout for a town election but entirely respectable, roughly 800 votes by midafternoon.
A businesslike calm was evident in Bedford’s polling place at the John Glenn Middle School; activity in the parking lot was more spirited. Candidate tables offered pizza, donut holes, and coffee prompting one voter to exclaim on social media, “Come on down, there’s tailgating at the polls!”
Families supported their candidate-relatives, and even pets got into the act. Young students questioned candidates, old and new friends laughed and hugged, and at least one person was soaking up her daily dose of Vitamin D.
Polls are open until 6 pm – If you’ve been meaning to vote, there couldn’t be a better time!
