8 months ago

HOULTON, Maine — Voter turnout was steady in Houlton, according to Town Clerk Khylee Wampler. 

A mixed bag of rain and snow could have kept some voters away, but by late morning the parking lot at the Gentle Memorial Building on Main Street in Houlton was beginning to fill with voters ready to cast their state and local ballots.

There are 3,801 registered voters in the Aroostook County town. 

Wampler said Tuesday’s turnout was about normal, but nothing like the long lines of voters for presidential elections. The Houlton polls close at 8 p.m.
