Voter Turn Out Low So Far on Election Day in Watertown
Races include the School Committee and a write-in for Town Council. You can contribute to the election coverage, too!
Watertown voters can choose at least one new members of the School Committee, and could vote in a write-in candidate for at-large Town Councilor, but so far few have cast their votes in the Watertown Town Election.
At 10:30 a.m., the total number of ballots cast at the Police Station, where precinct 10 voter, was 75.
Even fewer voters in Precinct 6, which goes to Hibernian Hall, had voted as of 10:45 a.m. — just 55.
Along with the School Committee race — where five candidates are going for three seats — and the Town Council (which has a write-in challenger), voters will also vote on the Library Board of Trustees and a change to the Town Charter.
Polls close at 8 p.m., and results are expected to be released soon afterward. Follow Watertown Patch for the results.
