Yep, it's time to do your civic duty in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Quincy, Newton, etc.
For Boston residents, city-council links if you haven't decided whom to vote for in the at-large and Allston/Brighton races. The whole Connolly/Murphy mailing thing.
If you did vote today, what was it like?
I was voter 14 in my precinct around 7:40 this morning. There was a small mini-phalanx of four palm-card giver-outers standing right in front of the door (of course), although they formed a little mini-corridor to let me through. One guy said good morning and tried to give me a Connolly card. I shook my head no. "Oh, you're not voting?" "Yes, I'm voting, just not for Connolly," I replied. So, yeah, pretty boring. As I drove by Holy Name School in West Roxbury, I noticed Councilor Flaherty also ignoring that quaint law against politicking in front of a polling place - he was planted right in front of the door.
