Candia on track to reach 90% turnout

CANDIA - With over two thirds of the town&#';s registered voters having passed ballots before 5:00 pm, Candia is on track to reach 90% voter turnout, a feat town election officials have called &#';phenomenal.&#';

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.
