Candia on track to reach 90% turnout
As of approximately 4:30 pm, 2068 of approximately 2800 registered voters in Candia had already voted, and as Town Moderator Clark Thyng noted, the after work hours were still to come.
';This is on pace to exceed 2008,'; said Thyng. ';If the pace keeps close to what it is, we should be close to a 90% turnout.';
According to Clark, the 100th vote in the town was passed at 6:27 am, less than half an hour after the polls opened at the Henry W. Moore School.
';That';s phenomenal,'; said Thyng. ';It';s gone exceptionally today. We';ve had a very strong turnout, very smooth, very little objection to the new voter ID requirements, so we';re really happy.';
According to Thyng, there have been no refusals in Candia to comply with the state';s new voter ID law.
