Light snow is falling on top of the heavy, wet stuff we got yesterday. The National Weather Service says we’re in for another inch or two, hopefully not enough to keep folks from getting to the polls today.
If you need to know where to vote in Southborough, read this post. Polls are open until 8:00 pm. For those of you who have already voted, how were things at the polls today?
Update: I went to the polls at Trottier at around 10:00 am and things were hopping. Poll workers said there has been a steady stream of voters. Here are some photos from my trip to the polls. Click a thumbnail to enlarge and view as a slideshow.
(I only got a photo of the Coakley supporter, but there was one there for Brown, too. Die-hards both.)
I went to Finn around 8:30. There were a lot of people there, but things moved very quickly. I think I was in and out of there in less than 10 minutes.
Hey, is anyone else as aggravated as I am about the abusive use of pre-recorded calling in the elections? I was getting 2-3 calls per day from Brown supporters. This morning I was driving when my cell phone rang. No one calls me when I’m driving to work unless it’s urgent, so I answered (hands-free, naturally). It was some marketing firm doing an exit poll!
So, even though I’m on the national Do Not Call list, I had repeated calls from political organizations so much so that I stopped answering the phone and monitored my calls. Then I had a marketer use up my cell phone minutes while I was driving.
I know that the national Do Not Call registry has an exemption for charity and political organizations, but this time I think it bordered on abuse.
