Steady Turnout in Warminster for Election Day Morning
Voters kept workers at the polls busy as the day began.
Considering the intensity of the 2012 presidential campaign, it should come as no surprise that voters in Warminster are eager to cast their ballots today.
Lines began forming at 6:45 a.m. on Tuesday as Warminster voters sought to get their ballots in before work or performing other errands.
"I'm just glad it's finally here," said Lynette Dempsey, first in line at the Warminster Township Building. "The phone calls and TV ads will go away."
The polls opened at 7 a.m., and by 9:30 a.m. many had at least 200 votes cast, indicating a good turnout day for the township. Despite the move from Log College Middle School to Willow Dale Elementary, turnout for the 6th voting district had cracked 300 by 10:30 a.m.
"We have about 1,300 registered voters in our district," said Michael Hartline, who stumped for the Republican party for the 15th district at the WREC Center. "We've got about 25 to 20 percent turnout so far, which is close to 2008's numbers."
For Democrat Frank Feinberg, the high numbers suggest that the national race will be a tough one to call.
"I don't think we'll know who the president is until at least tomorrow," Feinberg said while stumping for Democrats at Archbishop Wood. "The state and local races, we'll know tonight, but it could be a while for the national results."
