Fenway Park hasn’t seen a lot high-stakes action this fall, but voters in the General Election – including the high-stakes presidential election – brought some excitement to the old ballpark last weekend.
Fenway Park was identified as an alternate polling place for early voting by the Boston Election Department, and with the help of the Red Sox organization, voters were allowed to cast their vote under the stands by the hot dog stand.
In all voters indicated it was a great success to have voting at Fenway Park, and voters from all over Boston flocked to the Stadium to cast an historic vote in an historic spot. Voting at Fenway was open Saturday and Sunday for voting.
The City reported 4,494 Boston voters voted in person at Fenway Park over the weekend. There were 17,259 citywide across all early voting sites last Saturday and Sunday as well.
Early voting continues at locations all over the city through Oct. 30.
