Editor’s note: The Citizen will post Bedford’s preliminary vote totals as soon as they are available after the polls close, and will get the numbers from Burlington and Lexington as soon as possible.

Voter participation in Tuesday’s state primary election is almost certain to surpass the 2,979 who voted in the hotly-contested town election last March.

Town Clerk Bridget Rodrigue reported that around noon, 1,293 voters had cast ballots in person at John Glenn Middle School.

As of the end of business Friday, she said, citing figures from the secretary of state’s office, there were 1,219 early votes – by mail and in person – plus 44 absentee ballots.

That makes a grand total of 2,556 – with about eight hours of in-person voting remaining.

The turnout for the 2020 presidential election, by comparison, was more than 8,900. There are more than 10,000 registered voters in Bedford.
