Low primary turnout expected

FRAMINGHAM

Framingham Town Clerk Valerie Mulvey tells the Globe today that there haven't been many people rushing to register for the September Democratic primary.

"We haven't had a great deal of activity," she said.

The Globe reports today that low turnout is expected across the state.

``I don't see people forming conga lines in the street to vote," Secretary of State William Galvin said, adding he hoped interest would grow as the race nears its climax. ``There's three weeks left, and exciting things can happen."

The deadline to register to vote in the primaries is tomorrow
