Sunshine and signs


Late this afternoon Wayland voters were trickling in and out of the Town Building, one of two polling places in town.

By 4 p.m. 900 voters had cast ballots, which poll worker Marianne Marshall characterized as a “steady but not overwhelming” turnout.

The only sign holders outside the polling place were three Deval Patrick supporters. “He’s a breath of fresh air,” said Rodney Hager, who had been holding a Patrick sign since 7 a.m. and had the sunkissed face to prove it.

Hager said one woman had been holding signs for his rival Attorney General Tom Reilly earlier in the day. The two are facing off in a three-way race with Chris Gabrieli today in the Democratic gubernatorial primary.
