38 percent of voters turn out for election


About 38 percent of the town’s 3,425 eligible town voters showed up at the polls last Tuesday to select a new US senator. Gabriel Gomez secured 703 votes locally; his opponent, Edward Markey, got 583. But Markey won the office after garnering the majority of votes statewide. The local turnout was well above the statewide average of 27 percent.
