At two of the largest polling places in Drexel Hill, voter turnout was running significantly higher than normal.

By 9 a.m., 191 of the 1,800 registered voters at Drexel Brook Apartments has cast their ballots. That's about one fourth of all who voted in the last presidential election.

St. Dorothy's Church, with about 1,000 registered voters, saw 173 people come through. Normally, "we don't get more than 450 to 500 all day," said Pat Florio, judge of elections.
