Durham Presidential Election Results - 11/6/12 | Durham Shatters Its Own Record for Same Day Registrations (over 3,000 registrations in 12 hrs)

A thank you is extended to Town Moderator Chris Regan, Town Clerk/Tax Collector Lorrie Pitt, Supervisor Chairperson Ann Shump, Supervisor Judy Aikens, Supervisor Roni Pekins, and to the many, many other faithful volunteer election workers and officials who pulled together to make today’s Presidential election in Durham success. In total, 7,387 ballots (unofficial) were cast over the course of the day today at the Oyster River High School.  In 2008, a total of approximately 8,000 ballots were cast.

Durham shattered its own record for registering voters on Election Day. In all, 3,024 people registered just before casting their ballots - about 1,300 more than registered on the same day of the presidential election in 2008. To put this in perspective, during the 12 hours the polls were open on Tuesday, Durham added more new voters to its rolls than most New Hampshire towns and cities (two thirds of them) already had pre-registered before the election.  

  

The poll in Durham is the largest single polling location in Strafford County.
