Light early voting in my home town...

I just returned from voting here in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Was the only person casting a vote at the time I voted (8:15 am). Might suggest a light turnout for this election. This may have something to do with the fact that the pre-election polls have Democratic candidate Deval Patrick easily winning the race for Governor.

Incidentally, voting was the old-fashioned way using paper ballots. My big surprise was to discover how many candidates where unopposed. Definitely not good for our democracy.
