Wicked Local’s Emily Costello reports that turnout in Newton for Tuesday’s special elections was well above state average

Voter turnout in Newton was significantly better than statewide averages — with 40 percent of voters coming out to the polls versus approximately 27 percent statewide.

Perhaps Newton voters are not as ‘tired’ of elections as predicted. But given that the Ward 1 At Large Election was uncontested (and we still only have 23 aldermen), was the original election commission recommendation to delay this vote until the fall the right one?
