LOWELL, Mass. - Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin predicts record voter turnout, especially on the Republican side. He expects 700,000 votes to be cast in the Republican race, as opposed to 500,000 in 2008.
Bernie Sanders spent a lot of time and money in the Bay State, but Hillary Clinton brought in big crowds at her rallies.
Republicans John Kasich and Donald Trump also spent some time campaigning in Mass.
Voters in Lowell tell NH1 News they are happy to see such a great turnout, especially young people coming out to cast their ballots.
“There's just a lot of excited folks that are thinking through the issues, what's important to them and that's really what we need,” said George Ramirez.
“The unenrolled voters, the independents, they’re the ones that could change it up really either way,” said Phillip Petros, Warden of Ward 1 Precinct 3 in Lowell.
Galvin’s office says nearly 200,000 Democrats changed their registration to unenrolled to have the option to cast a Republican ballot.
