Just did my civic duty. Ward 7 Precinct 2 voters in Newton, Massachusetts go to a Middle School at the edge of the Massachusetts Turnpike.

I walked right in, no lines, to get to the table with my street, etc. Got my ballot, filled it out (no hole punching this time!) and returned to a second table where I waited for one minute behind a gentleman before reporting my ballot and dropping it in the box.

An old guy manning the table with my monitor was looking around at the largely empty auditorium and said, straight-faced, “Huge turnout.”

Huge? Welcome to Newton….
