Remarkable turnout in Burlington

From Register Citizen Staff Writer David Hutter ...
BURLINGTON — Some 4,116 residents in this community had voted in person and another 350 people had voted through absentee ballot today by around 5:20 p.m., Republican Registrar of Voters Jackie Sheehan said.
"We had very long lines this morning," Sheehan said. "Over a period of one and a half hours, we had 1,700 people vote. I am amazed at how quickly everyone passes through."
The crowds have since subsided at the polls as of 5:20 p.m., she said. The town has 6,113 registered voters and an overall population of about 9,100.
"This turnout is tremendous - we’ve never seen anything like it," Sheehan said. "I do not know if it will pick up again."
