In Newton, 5,755 people had applied for absentee ballots by midday Thursday, or roughly 10 percent of the city’s registered voters, said Craig AJ Manseau, the Election Commission’s executive secretary. The number is up slightly from the 2008 presidential election, Manseau said, and he expects the total voter turnout Tuesday to meet or exceed the 81 percent turnout four years ago.
