Lineups at Advance Poll

There was big rush at the second advance poll at City Hall on Monday, as 2,182 people showed up to vote, 73% more than the second advance in the 2014 election.

At 6:15 p.m. there were 88 people in a snaking line outside the council chamber, many of them young.

The large increase in advance voting may represent the changing demographic in the city, with many more people living and working downtown.

They may have voted in advance to save Saturday for other activities, like enjoying the nice mid October weather, which is expected to continue all weekend.

Saturday will be the biggest rush of all and the next and last chance to vote.
