The Turnout Is Too Damn High!

Filed under: Local Politics

As predicted, voter turnout in Western New York looks like it’s extraordinarily high. Maybe it’s Paladino. In the city, we’re hearing reports of very high turnout in several North Buffalo election districts. Some of them showed turnouts of 30 percent of eligible voters and higher by lunch time.

An election district in the Fillmore section of Buffalo showed 50 percent of eligible voters had cast ballots by 3pm. That’s pretty close to the total turnout in 2006 in the same district.
