Thanks Bobby. More than 8200 votes. Does anyone know how many registered voters there are in Holliston? Was this a record turn out? Congratulations to all the candidates who gave their sweat, tears and finances to make this a democratic process, and to all the volunteers who worked hard for their candidates.
