A bright sun and an almost cloudless blue sky greeted early voters this morning on what is expected to be a crisp but dry Election Day.
The forecast should be good for voter turnout: mostly sunny with a high of 55 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton. A gentle west breeze blowing between 8 and 11 miles per hour is expected to add a November chill.
Some clouds may move in later, but rain is not expected.
The wind is supposed to pick up a little this evening, when forecasters expect mostly clear skies and a low of 38 degrees. Poll remain open in Boston until 8 p.m.
