As of 1 p.m., a total of 839 votes had been cast at both polling places — 294 at Huckleberry Hill Elementary School (District I) and 545 at Brookfield High School (District II) — representing 8.7 percent of Brookfield's 9,675 registered voters.
“It’s been like this all day,” Brookfield High School poll moderator Paula Hopewell said Tuesday, pointing to a gym nearly empty of voters.
Voting at the gym at Huckleberry Hill Elementary was just as slow Tuesday morning.
“It will pick up when they come home from work,” poll moderator Irene Berger said, as many people either forget to vote first thing in the morning or don’t have time.
A previous version of the Parks Revitalization Plan failed at referendum in 2010 by a vote of 1,384-1,206. (A second question on the $10 million paving project passed in the same vote, 1,656-934.)
Polls will be open at both polling places Tuesday until 8 p.m.
Check back with Brookfield Patch Tuesday night as the results come in.
