Durham close to breaking all-time high voting record with hours to go


DURHAM — As of 3 p.m. 6,272 people have already voted in the town of Durham - just 1,000 votes away from their all-time record of 7,442 in the 2012 election.

Town Manager Todd Selig said that the day has already been extraordinarily busy. The polls opened at 7 a.m. with "unprecedented" lines.

“If what we are seeing here today is an indication of election interest across New Hampshire, the entire state will be on track to shatter previous voting turnout records,” stated Selig. “I would not be surprised to see us break the 9,000 mark."

Durham has 13,332 registered voters on its checklist.

Both Governor Maggie Hassan and Senator Jeanne Shaheen stopped by individually to visit with supporters outside the polling place earlier in the day.
