Heavy Turnout Marks 2016 Election in Bridgton, Maine

At 3:30 p.m. the cars were backed out into the street.

BRIDGTON, Maine - November 08, 2016 - Reports were that the turnout was heavy all day. This reporter voted at 11:00 a.m. with the lines going out the front door. If the candidacy of Donald Trump has done anything positive for American elections, increasing voter turnout just might be it.

Many voters we spoke to were women and many of them were voting with their mothers or other female family members. One women remarked, ''I can't believe I get to vote for a woman for President of the United States!'' The woman beside her exclaimed, ''There was an hour wait this morning for people who wanted to visit Susan B. Anthony's grave.''  News media said that ''What a day for women, and what a day for America! she said.  For more information about Susan B. Anthony go to: History Channel/Woman's History.
