Seems most of the Valley got it right with the exception of Acton,Bedford,Carlisle & Concord, Howie Carr calls them "The Guilt Belt".

A bunch of blue blood liberal snobs and elitist swine will be crying in their Chardonnay tonight.

Where was the Lowell Democratic Delegation on this? Over the past years I have received endless correspondance from Tsongas, Pangy, Golden, Nangle, Murphy and the motherload MEEHAN supporting everything they could think of that benefits them. This election - hardly anyhting.

I have never been more proud to be from Massachusetts. I am hoping this is the start of getting rid of 1 party rule in Massachusetts. Hopefully, candidates like Sen. Brown will begin to run and we can get rid of the corruption on Beacon Hill. Scott "the Broom" Brown has begun the sweep. Good Luck in D.C. I know you will do the Commonwealth of Massachusetts proud!

I noticed that and was quite disappointed. At least we got it right, though.

I am so glad I didn't neglect in voting, as well as all of my family. Let's welcome Brown and hope he will do what he promised. We all need health insurance, but we also MUST KNOW the contents of the intended law to be passed, and the consequences of our elderly, as well as all others.

Well, Coakley is stalling meehan's plan for the new dorms with that lawsuit. I doubt very much he supported her. As for the Three Stooges and Shemp, the heck with them.

It actually displayed the massive superficiality of the Democratic party en total.

Imagine what the turnout would have been if Coakley were black?

Sad, but true, to even bring up the topic.

Libs. are a mile wide but only an inch deep when it comes to critical thinking.

The inept Fraud in the White House is living proof of all of this.

Americas moderates elected the Prom queen from the class of 79 to run the most powerful nation and run the worlds largest economy when he has never so much as run a road side chicken shack in the hood of Chicago.

One year in and it's quite obvious:

O- one
B- big
A- A$$
M- mistake
A- America

I don't understand having a vote on a Tuesday anymore. The economic climate has shifted in a way that it is pusing people further from their jobs and causing them to spend more time on their commutes. Or maybe they are off to their second jobs. Why can't we have a vote on a Saturday? Why not try to maximize voter potential instead of wondering again and again why voter turnout sucks.

Voter turnout was actually up across the state with this election. Lowell was the exception. But I think they always have a low voter turnout in comparison to surrounding towns.

Oh definitely Lowell's turnout was smaller. Which makes sense because it is a working class city. My point was that many people drive far to their jobs. The days of the Tuesday election do not make sense anymore. There was a time where you could sneak out of work for ten minutes and pop over to the polls to pull the lever for your candidate of choice. Now people are working 30 miles down I-93.

I have a relative that was working at one of the voter spots in Lowell yesterday. She said between 9 - 3 it was a ghost town. That is because no one is able to get there. Put the vote on a Saturday and you will see the crowds. I gurantee it.

Wow - Chelmsford went for Brown. Sam Poulten must be crying this morning - after all the FREE ads he gave Coakley.....instead of "Everybody Gets It" it must have really become "Nobody Listens!"

Bunch of bulldrop!! Lowell is the only working class city in the Merrimack Valley?? Gimmee a break! I live in Pepperell and I work in Medford. Everybody in every town works. As one of the previous respondents said, it's probably due to disproportionate number of freeloaders in Lowell that didn't care or were not educated enough to really understand what was/is at stake in this election. People work in Burlington/Wilmington/Tewksbur y/Billerica/Chelmsford/Tyngsbo rough/Dracut. Tyngsborough had the 2nd lowest turnout in the valley at 45%, but the rest of the towns were well over 50% turnout. And let me clue you in on something. There are plenty of us living on the west side of Rt 3 that commute and work 5 days a week.
