Turnout still up with three hours to go

At 5 p.m., with three hours left before the polls close, 26.6 percent of registered voters had turned out.
That doesn't include about 500 voters who voted by absentee ballot.
It doesn't appear that the registrars' hopes of reaching 40 percent turnout will come true. It's likely to fall well short of that, but still well above the 28 percent average in the past two municipal elections.
Who's winning? Who knows? The numbers will be counted starting shortly after 8 p.m.
