Polls opened at 7 a.m. in Massachusetts on Tuesday, as residents headed to local schools, municipal offices, and other polling places to cast their votes for the presidential election, statewide ballot questions, and other local races. While it’s too early to guess at total turnout numbers, people who posted about their voting experience on Twitter are have almost universally reported long lines.

From Boston neighborhoods like Allston and Roxbury to nearby towns and cities like Medford and Watertown, voters sent photos of lines around the block, with some saying they’ve never seen the polls so busy before.
