Man, early voting is really hopping in Boston

Talk show host with a rabbit

There's probably a good reason why, as Erica Fletcher shows us, NECN's Sue O'Connell brought a rabbit to City Hall to interview people voting early, and just as soon as we find out what it is, we'll let you know (Update: And we do, in the comments below).

Most pets and livestock have more sense than to vote for Trump.

I dropped by to vote and to photo-bomb the mayor during his press conference but I didn't see you.

Early voting results: City Hall was packed, at least between noon and 2 pm. Chinatown wasn't very busy between 2 - 2:30 pm. South End had a line all afternoon and it was taking people 45 minutes to vote. Very busy, and I ran out of campaign literature. (Yep.)

After I voted, I went up to a WBUR camera guy and said, "I'm John Keith and I'm running for office and my name is on the ballot, do you want to take a photo of me?" To which he replied, "No, I'm good."

Arrived at City Hall about 6:00. The line was looped around the steps in front of the magnetometer. It remained pretty constant while I was there. Total time was probably only 20 minutes. The line moved quickly.

There were no glitches in the process. All workers knew what to do. Communication was clear and simple. Very well done.

I am very glad Massachusetts implemented early voting. Even if this doesn't increase the number of people voting at least it makes voting far easier than rushing to the one voting place immediately after work.

Secret Ballot but with Voter's Name on Voting Envelope. [Thinks: Blind Volunteers, Blind Poll Workers, Blindfolded folks open Voters' Envelopes.]
