Special State Election -- Holliston

by Bill Tobin
June 25, 2013

THe voters came out to vote on this hot and muggy special election day.

 

Two familiar candidates and one unknown name were on the ballot for the Senator in Congress. Democrat Markey, Republican Gomez and a new name, Heos of the Twelve Visions Party.

Voter turnout was predicted to be quite low, but Holliston appeared to contradict the predictions, as 3342 or 34.3% of the 10,001 registered voters cast their votes.

The results in Holliston are

Edward Markey          1736

Gabriel Gomez          1681

Richard Heos                 5

write in                         9

Total                       3432

As of this writing, the state results are not known.

The poll workers again had homemade hot apricot and blueberry muffins, with butter, thanks to the kindness of Sylvia Stickney. Much appreciated and thank you, Sylvia.

 

This climbing wall in the high school gymnasium provided entertainment for the poll workers at the May Town Election. Not so this time as the voters kept the workers on their toes.  The town election had a grand total of 666 voters, or about 6.7% of the registered voters. As of 10:00 am this morning at the State Special Election, 676 voters had cast their votes.

Perhaps the voters at the State Election today will find the time and interest to vote in the next Holliston Town Election.

This election used the towns "Blackboard connect" to remind people of this election. The town election was not as visible as this one was.
