About 700 voters as of noon today had cast a ballot in the town election.
The total represented a steady turnout so far. About 1,000 voters cast a ballot during the same timeframe at January's presidential Primary vote. And about 500 voters cast a ballot in that time during a townwide vote last year on fixing two small bridges that support Swasey Parkway.
The polls are open today until 8 p.m. at the Talbot Gym (30 Linden St.) near the Seacoast School of Technology.
