Election Warden Patricia Crew opened the door to Bedford’s polling place at 8 o’clock sharp on Saturday morning, with just one voter waiting in line. There were reports of enthusiastic early voting, and the polls will be open until 6 pm, but the hordes were not out early.

In the parking lot, candidates and their supporters told a different story. Nearly everyone was on hand, with warm hats, gloves, and puffy coats to protect against the chill, and dark glasses to shield their eyes from the bright sunshine.

The polls are open until 6 pm. On the chance that you’d like to check the facts one last time, click this link for The Citizen’s pre-election wrap-up.
