It's looking like a record turnout in Pelham
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.
