The Final Hours of Election Day

Fall River Voters have a decision to make on Tuesday, Election Day, but unless an after-work surge hits the polls before 8pm tonight, turnout may be almost half of what it was two years ago, according to the Digital Edition of The Fall River Herald News. 


Some 18% of registered voters have cast ballots thus far this afternoon, compared to a 35% turnout in 2015. 

Two ballot questions--a package of charter revisions, and a $123 million bond order for work on water, sewer, and CSO issues are to be decided, along with the Mayor's Sweepstakes, 9 City Council and 6 School Committee slots.
