It’s Preliminary Day in Boston today. Election turnout is, according to this Boston Globe article:

Secretary of State William F. Galvin pegged turnout between 110,000 and 125,000, cautioning that such a forecast was “very speculative.” Galvin said the number of absentee ballot applications was almost double the amount four years ago, and said he noticed a particular surge in applications from places like Back Bay and the North End and West End, neighborhoods not known for political clout.

“That tells me that, in areas of the city that traditionally don’t take an interest in municipal elections, interest is high,” Galvin said.

But besides that. However, Preliminary Day turns out, this election has given me the opportunity to meet some really great people I would have otherwise not have had the chance of meeting and getting to know during this election in Boston.
