Primary election draws large turnout of voters

The 2010 primary election Aug. 24 in the Rutland area as well as Ludlow drew a heavy number of voters, much more than local political pundits had estimated. By noon time, the polls that opened at 10 a.m. had already surpassed by a wide margin the total voter count from the last primary election.

According to Ludlow Town Clerk Ulla Cook, 200 voters had cast their ballots before 2 p.m. In Rutland, observers noted that if normal voting habits prevailed, the late afternoon and early evening turnout would have increased the total voter count significantly.
