Polls Close; Montrose is Hours Away From Election Results

It proved a slow day for pollsters for this 2011 campaign.

Election day draws to a close, and Patch was on site at , , and for the final moments.

This morning began with a slow start, with voting counts at Montrose Community Church and First Baptist Church still in the 20s and 30s by 10:30 a.m. The voting continued to be slow, with modest numbers of voters trickling in throughout the day and into the evening.

At Monte Vista Elementary School (which is the designated polling site for 1,450 Montrose voters) only 184 turned out. First Baptist Church reported 189 voters out of the 1,500 registered voters designated to their site, and Montrose Community Church reported 122 out of 3,640. These results were as of 7:30 p.m.

In an interview with Patch this afternoon, Glendale City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian reported that 13,000 voters had registered to vote by mail, a number he said was "consistent with years past."

At 8 p.m., those absentee ballots will begin to be counted, and election "inspectors" begin the process of bringing ballots to the election center at the election center. The results will be in some time Tuesday night.

Stay with Patch for the results as soon as they are announced.
