According to reports from across Massachusetts, there’s been heavy voter turn-out on this election day. In some precincts, people have waited as long as two hours to cast their ballots. Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin predicts that 3.2 million voters will cast ballots Tuesday — surpassing voter turnout in the 2008 presidential election.

With just under four hours to go until the polls close, we check in with our reporters at voting stations across the state.
