MA senate race, January 19, 2010, Voter turnout high?, Massachsuetts Secretary of State William Galvin, 40 percent of voters, Poll watchers, Voting abuses, WBZ Boston, Be Our Eyes & Ears
From WBZ Boston, January 19, 2010.
“Voter Turnout May Be High For Brown-Coakley Race”
“Voter turnout is expected to be high Tuesday for the special election to fill the state’s vacant U.S. Senate seat.
A win by Republican Scott Brown over one-time front-runner Martha Coakley would eliminate Democrats’ 60-seat supermajority in the Senate and likely kill President Obama’s overhaul of health care.
The last time Massachusetts elected a Republican to the U.S. Senate was 1972.
Democrats outnumber Republicans in the Commonwealth, 3-1.
If Coakley wins, she would be the first woman elected to the Senate from Massachusetts.”
“TURNOUT EXPECTED TO BE HIGH
Massachsuetts Secretary of State William Galvin told WBZ he expects about 40-percent of voters to turn out for the special election.
Galvin said about 800,000 came out for the primaries and he believes that should double to 1.6 million based on the intense interest in this campaign.
Weather could be a factor.”
WBZ TV Boston is asking those voting to provide feedback.
“Help be our eyes and ears at the polls. We’re not asking who you voted for… but we ARE interested in:
What was it like at your polling place? Were there lines, or not a soul in sight? How about campaign supporters? Lots of people with signs (for which candidates), or none at all? What was the buzz of voters? Turned off by negative ads and robocalls?”
