By 10 a.m. 30 percent of the votes, including absentee ballots, were in, said City Administrator Deborah Stuart.
Approximately 1,200 absentee ballots had been turned in. Stuart was working the doors at City Hall, ushering voters to the city’s three precincts they’re voting in.
“This is our Super Bowl,” Stuart said.
This is the busiest City Hall has been all year, with people coming in and out for voting. Downtown is normally quiet and with a lot of parking available. On Election Day, cars were parked everywhere and more people than usual were walking about.
With talk of a potentially historical turnout for these non-presidential election, Mason is doing its part.
