Durham breaks record, has 3,000 more ballots delivered
DURHAM — This election has brought out thousands of more voters than usual, with multiple NH towns breaking their all time voting record.
From the very start of the day, Durham saw an incredible turnout - and it hasn't slowed down.
Town Manager Tom Selig said, "Everyone was is high spirits the whole day and the only problem was long lines - which isn't a bad problem to have."
Selig said that by 5 p.m. they had beat their all time record of 7,442 voters in the 2012 election with 7,900 votes.
He predicts the upwards of 9,000 votes by the end of the day. A police officer escorted in 3,000 new ballots for Durham just in case they needed them.
Selig says over 3,000 voters did same day registration today, the majority being UNH students.
At 6:24pm, Londonderry also hit a new voter turnout record at 13,273.
