Chelsea voters will go to the polls Tuesday and cast their ballots in two of the most exciting elections in history: the U.S. Presidential Election and the U.S. Senate Election.
Voters have been inundated with television ads featuring President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney on the national level and U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic nominee Elizabeth Warren on the state level.
Assistant City Clerk Patricia Lewis is expecting a large turnout in the city for the election in which voters will also consider ballot questions.
“It’s been pretty busy so I think the turnout will be above average,” said Lewis.
Lewis that there are approximately 14,300 voters registered voters including 7,684 enrolled as Democrats and 856 enrolled as Republicans. A total of 5,665 voters are undeclared.
Chelsea has three polling locations: the Williams School Gymnasium (Arlington Street Entrance); Saint Rose Elementary School (580 Broadway); and Public Safety Building (Corner of Sagamore Ave. and Cheever Street).
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
