HANOVER, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts residents in the newly shaped 9th Congressional district are heading to the polls.
With a low voter turnout expected across the state, about 70 voters had cast their ballots at Hanover High School by 9 a.m. Thursday.
In the Democratic primary, incumbent U.S. Rep. William Keating is squaring off against Bristol District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter.
On the Republican side, former Sandwich Selectman Adam Chaprales is facing off against Christopher Sheldon, the Plymouth County Charter Commissioner.
Joe Zemotel said he supports Keating because of his work in Congress. He feels Sutter's campaign didn't make much of an effort to reach voters.
Hanover Republican Mike Nolan voted for Sheldon, despite not knowing much about the candidate. Nolan thinks Keating will do well in the district because his opponents are relatively unknown.
