Dependent upon who you speak with about the presidential race now underway, there are the dual beliefs that President Donald Trump must be beaten to save American Democracy and that Trump’s re- election is the only thing that will save it.
The nation is split.
The politics are divisive.
A lot of the news is fake.
And now its presidential primary time next Tuesday in Massachusetts.
Everett already began voting for the primary on Monday, according to officials in the Election Department.
“I am expecting about 1500 to 2000 votes out of a total that might reach 8500 cast before all is said and done,” predicted City Clerk Sergio Cornelio.
As he spoke Monday morning inside his city hall office, early Everett voters getting a jump on the primary were already casting absentee ballots, filling them out and the votes being filed by officials on the third floor of city hall inside the Keverian Room.
“All those ballots will be counted, logged properly and treated as absentee votes and walked into our office on Election Day,” Linda-Lee Angiolillo, of the city’s Election Department.
