CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Months of campaign commercials and news coverage have all come down to this. Polls are now closed in Massachusetts, and now all voters can do is sit and wait for the returns to come in.
Polls closed at 8:00 P.M. across the Commonwealth, where possibly record numbers of voters turned out to vote in races for President, U.S. Senate, and other races from State Legislature to non-binding ballot questions.
NBC News has called the state for President Obama. Though Mitt Romney used to be the state's governor, this was not unexpected, as Massachusetts has not gone to a Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan was re-elected in 1984.
Perhaps the most closely-watched aspect of this campaign has been the Senate race between Republican Senator Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren; a campaign that has been among America’s most highly-contested and most costly.
Also closely watched will be the ballot questions, including questions that would allow medical marijuana, and one that would allow life-ending drugs to be distributed to terminally-ill patients.
