Some Wellington polls at a standstill this afternoonby Ana Valdes | January 31st, 2012
Polls at Wellington City Hall were empty this afternoon, and a city official said only about 100 voters had come in all day.
One Wellington resident said she brought a book to kill time while she waited in line, but was able to vote in less than five minutes. No one was inside the precinct.
Nearby, at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, two poll workers were chatting outside, while the precinct was empty.
Elections officials expect crowds to pick up after 5 p.m., when voters leave work. Polls close at 7 p.m.
