In an area where voter turnout runs high compared to the rest of the state, John Paolino fills out his ballot in a voting booth with his granddaughter Kaylee Cormier by his side. Upon entering the polling place, Paolino said to his granddaughter, "Come on, I'll show you how to vote." Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is expecting voter turnout in this off-year election to run below 30%.
