We were voters 1535 and 1536 at Ward 5, Precinct 1 at North Beverly Elementary. There was a very short wait to sign in and get into the booth and the poll workers were friendly as always, especially Mr. Phelan and Mr. Boccia.

Boston.com is reporting only 1859 having voted in Beverly for the Presidential Race with 100% or 12 of 12 precincts reporting. Based on the above, those numbers are WAY off if all the votes are in: https://www.boston.com/news/special/politics/2012/general/mass-us-president-election-results-2012.html In the Senate race, it's 1865, in the heavily-contested race for US Rep it's 1816, and for Ballot Question 2 (which was on the back) had only 1828 votes. That seems a bit off given the Ward total estimates above (many of them WAY early in the day) equal up to 20511. Someone might want to ask about that...

Hi B.K.--our numbers are the unofficial results provided by the city clerk. Not sure about Boston.com's numbers...they may have been preliminary figures.
