The much-hyped battle for Northeast Philly's 10th Councilmanic District seems to be plodding along.
Ellen Kaplan, the Commitee of Seventy's vice president, just posted the following update on turnout in the Northeast Region, which includes the 10th: 66/32—677 registered voters/77 voted (11.4%); 53/21—691 registered voters/97 voted (14%).
"It's been pretty much the same all day. Pretty steady, but a low turnout," said Republican City Councilman Brian O'Neill, who is trying to win his ninth term.
"It'll probably be a high turnout compared to the rest of the city, but lower than what it was four years ago."
