I voted around 10:30 this morning and inquired from the poll workers if the snow had impacted voter turn out. I was told emphatically that turn out (at least in Ward 7 - Boston) has been quite high. If you have not voted - stop what you are doing and vote today before the polls close.
Unless you live under a rock, chances are you have heard that the Republican Scott Brown has won the open seat in the US Senate to fill the remaining two years of Sen. Kennedy's seat. This represents the first time that a Republican has been a US Senator from my state since 1972. Brown was not my candidate of choice, but I do wish him well and the best of luck. I hope he is as moderate as he portrayed himself when running for office.
