PELHAM - Voters lined the corridors of Pelham High School Tuesday morning for what's looking to be a record voter turnout.

'There were lines out the door before we opened,' Town Clerk Dorothy Marsden said. 'It's been busy.'

Shortly after 8:40 a.m., more than a thousand residents had already voted, according to town moderator Philip Currier.

Currier, who has worked the polls for quite a few years, declined to say just how long he's been in town.

'You don't want to know,' he said with a chuckle. 'But I might have met Lincoln once.'

Things have been running smoothly at the polls thus far, Currier said. 'Folks have been pretty cooperative,' he added.
