By Tuesday morning this week, more than 2,000 Everett residents have cast their votes for the upcoming primary on September 6.
Using mailed in ballots and by appearing at city hall, residents have been voting early at a rapid clip.
City Clerk Sergio Cornelio said he believes voting totals for the primary will be in the range of 7500-8000.
Over the years, Cornelio has been a solid handicapper of the total vote.
For the first time in many an election, an Independent candidate has his name on the ballot.
Councilor at Large Mike Marchese is running as an Independent for the representative’s seat. His name is already on the ballot as a result of him passing in the required amount of necessary signatures to be a candidate.
Rep. Joe McGonagle and his opponent Guerline Alcy are running as Democrats. The winner will face Marchese.
