Tilton voter turnout heavy

TILTON - The voter turnout was heavy in Tilton, probably about 20 percent higher than at the last presidential election, town officials said.

About 200 people voted in the first hour, officials said.

By 4 p.m., 1,173 voters had cast their ballots.

Less than 20 people came without their IDs.

'We've had quite a few new people registering, and that's always nice,' said Patricia Consentino, chair of the selectmen.
