Downeast towns experienced ‘wicked’ voter turnout

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon 

It’s election day afternoon in Machiasport, and voters are lined up in the short town office hallway waiting for their turn at the three-person voting booth. Machiasport’s old wooden ballot box has already been called into service once because the new ballot scanner wasn’t working. But it’s up and running now, and town clerk Marcia Hayward is glad. With it, she’ll be able to head home around 9:30 tonight.
