Last year, when Guy Whitney came to the Willston Community Center to cast his vote, Whitney said things looked a lot different than they did this afternoon.
"Nobody's here," said Whitney. "Last year was crazy; parking lot was full, line was out around the corner, it was crazy."
As of this afternoon, the Precinct Chief Mark Hulshart said a little more than 20 percent of registered voters had cast their votes here. Hulshart said last year, the Willston Precinct, traditionally a low turnout area, had surpassed that number by eight in the morning.
Ann Marie Hicks, who was bringing a friend to vote this afternoon, says there was a wait when she voted earlier in the day. "I had to wait about half an hour, which was surprising," said Hicks. "This one we just walked right in at 3 o'clock." Hulshart says last year, because of concern about the crowds, most people did their voting in the morning.
