UPDATED: At 5:29 p.m. there were 540 ballots cast in Ward 1 and many more were expected, Ward 1 moderator Michael Hayden said.

“What I understand is that there’ll be more votes as we push close to 8 [p.m.],” Hayden said.

Yale College Democrats president Ben Stango ’11 said his organization, which has been running a ‘Get out the vote’ campaign all day, would be happy with over 600 voters.
