Absentee Voters Down from 2008 in Bangor 

Thursday evening was the last chance for early voters to request absentee ballots, or hit the polls.So far, thousands have cast their votes early in Bangor, but city clerk Lisa Goodwin said the number is down from the 2008 presidential election, which is a good indicator of what can be expected to happen on Election Day.”From my experience with the absentee voting, if the absentee voting is down then normally Election Day isn’t as busy, but we still have good numbers here in bangor, so it is going to be busy on election day,” said Goodwin.
