Warm weather and big issues draw residents to the polls in Middleton

MIDDLETON – As a result of a $6.6 million bond to build a new school, contested races and a special state election, Moderator Jack Savage anticipated a record turnout at the polls Tuesday

"We've had a steady stream," Savage said, adding there was a big crowd of residents at the polls before they opened at 8 a.m.

Just before lunch, more than 150 residents had cast ballots for town, school and state matters.

"That's double what we usually have at this point," Savage said.

Residents must decide whether to withdraw from Farmington schools, accept a tuition agreement with Gov. Wentworth Regional School and take out a $6,592,500 bond to build a new school.
