High Voter Turnout Expected In Massachusetts

BOSTON (CBS) – In the final sprint before Election Day, the candidates are crisscrossing the state and urging supporters to get out the vote.

The Secretary of State’s office predicts a high voter turnout. 

Secretary Bill Galvin projects a turnout in excess of 2.4 million registered voters.

He tells WBZ News Radio it’s been twenty years since voter turnout was projected to be this high in a mid-term election.

“That’s a very high number for a gubernatorial election. Traditionally, the gubernatorial election usually draws in the area of 2.2 million.  The last time we had a turnout reach this number was in 1990.”

Galvin is himself up for re-election.  He’s being challenged by republican William Campbell and James Henderson who is un-enrolled.

Nationwide, the mid-term elections are expected to draw big numbers, with republicans looking to win back the house and make strides in governor’s races across the country.

    Everyone should get out and vote! Don’t let our elections be stolen by big money. From where did all those out-of-state millions of dollars come? What do they expect in return? Why do most of the paid ads have deliberate lies? You must elect whomever you feel will do the best for you, your family, and your community. No one is in that booth with you. You don’t even need to tell how you voted.Think beyond all the lies, and listen to what is truly said. You will have to face yourself in the mirror every day for the next four years for your decision.

    My fellow truth loving Americans, I tried to warn you about Obama before the last election but not enough people listened.Not even I could imagine that All the Democrats in the House and Senate would follow Obama BLINDLY. Hopefully with Gods help you will make the correction we need.
    God Bless America
