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.
