Polls are closed. Let the fun begin.
Volunteer poll worker Linda Benway said turnout in Manchester was good during her shift, which ended at noon.
"While there, I was happy to see most voters accepting of the changes made for voter safety and security of the process," Benway said.
She added that many voters wanted to physically enter the ballot into the machine and some even commented on a concern about voter fraud and ballot tampering.
Benway said six or seven voters registered at the polls to vote and at least two were first-time voters.
Voters from throughout the area have said that voting was quick and easy without hiccups.
Voters, on Facebook, have checked in from Manchester, Arlington, Dorset, Sunderland, Londonderry, Jamaica and Ludlow and the only complaints was the Manchester didn't have "I voted" stickers.
As of 10 a.m., polls throughout the area are open and voting is reported to be heavy.
