Although clerks may predict the direction that their community will vote based on history, they say that the feedback from voters coming into their offices does not necessarily favor one party or another this year.
“Our take is that people are very upset with the negativity all the way around,” said Jane Wetson, town clerk in Hamilton. “Whether that will convince them to go to the other side, I don’t know. We’ve had a lot of people, both Democrat and Republican, switch over to being un-enrolled. What they have in mind, I don’t know.”
