Voting action fast, furious at area precincts
A steady stream of voters at Perham City Hall started at 7 a.m. with a line from the entry doors to the parking lot.
By the end of the day, combined absentee and election day ballots totalled 1,408 in Perham--probably the highest voter turnout in the town's history. This compares to 1,305 ballots cast at the 2004 presidential election, and only 980 ballots in 2006, a non-presidential year.
A whopping 361 new registrations were recorded at the Perham city precinct.
