NEW: Worcester Polls Remain Open Due to Long Lines

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

 

Even though polls were scheduled to close at 8:00p.m., they will remain open so that everyone in line at closing time will be allowed to cast their ballot.

In the Vernon Hill section of Worcester, three precincts are located in the Worcester Senior Center, and GoLocal received reports that the line of inactive voters waiting to cast their ballots in one of the precincts was over 30 people long.

The line of active voters still waiting to cast their ballots was at least 25 people long at 8:00p.m., and observers predicted that it would be about 30 minutes before poll workers could get all the voters through and ballots filed.

The long lines that have been a fixture at the Worcester polls all day will increase the wait time for results, and many of the local campaigns are holding out for a few more hours.
