Early voting in Chelsea has been a bit slow, but voters are taking advantage of the new early voting period ahead of the Nov. 6 election.
City Clerk Jeannette Cintron White said there had been 298 voters from Monday, Oct. 22, through Monday, Oct. 29.
The first week saw 190 voters, but White said that during the 2016 early voting period, most of the voters came during the second week.
For the first time, voters were allowed to vote on Saturday, but with the Nor’Easter raging outside, only 50 showed up.
There are 16,828 registered voters in the City that will be able to vote in the Nov. 6 State Election.
