Kelly Darling, assistant town clerk in Orleans, says about 65% of ballots were cast early — either in person or by mail.
"We have three teams processing the early votes. I’m in fact doing that now to feed some through the machine… So hopefully everything at 8 o’clock will be through the machine. Baring any problems, that’s our plan," she said.

10:00am - Chatham
Jennine Nickerson, of Chatham, says though she doesn’t always like what he says… she voted to re-elect President Trump this year.
"He doesn’t have a political agenda. So many people that’s their career. And they’re going to talk out of both sides of their mouth just to get a vote and he doesn’t have to do that, and yay!"
Also in Chatham, Margaret Kenneway said Joe Biden earned her vote… and she does NOT want four more years of a country under Trump.
"The way he handles things is so poor. That’s mostly it. It’s him more than anything else. And I just think Biden has a humanitarian attitude, which Trump does not."
9:30am - Rochester
Richard Desrosiers of Fairhaven was all decked out for the Trump rolling rally that started in Rochester this morning and headed west. He wore a label button that said, "Make liberals cry again."
Trump supporters held flags and signs outside the Rochester Senior Center this morning before embarking on a rolling rally to other polling places in Plymouth and Bristol Counties.
