Turnout 'brisk' in Framingham

FRAMINGHAM

Framingham town officials said lines were moving steadily at their precincts this morning.

“Voter turnout is brisk,” said Lisa Ferguson, assistant town clerk. “We’re seeing a lot of activity.”

The busiest precincts were the five on the north side of town, but even there the number of voters was not causing significant lines. Ferguson attributed that to a short primary ballot.

“There might be some sort of – we call it the dinner rush – between five and seven o’clock,” Ferguson said. “Whether it’s going to generate lines, we’re not sure.”
