Election Day was Tuesday, and there was a strong turnout at the polls at Hopkinton Middle School’s Brown Gym. A total of 7,821 residents cast ballots (including early and absentee voting).

In the race for state representative for the 8th Middlesex District, Hopkinton voters went for Holliston Democrat James Arena-DeRosa over Millis Republican Loring Barnes, 4,814 to 2,733. Arena-DeRosa carried Holliston as well as Sherborn’s lone district by an even greater percentage, earning the right to take the seat vacated earlier this year by Carolyn Dykema.

Hopkinton backed Democrat Maura Healey for governor, 5,091 to 2,556 for Republican Geoff Diehl. Healy led by a similar percentage statewide with almost 64 percent of votes counted (via AP).

Regarding the ballot questions, Hopkinton voters opposed the new millionaire income tax increase in Question 1, 4,078 to 3,525, although the yes voters were leading by 5 percentage points statewide with 57 percent of the ballots counted. Question 2 (dental insurance) was a strong yes (74.7 percent) in Hopkinton as well as statewide. Question 3 (liquor sales) was a close yes (50.1 percent) for Hopkinton but was a no statewide by 9 percent with 57 percent of votes counted. Question 4 (driver’s licenses for immigrants) was a 55.3 percent yes in Hopkinton and was leading by slightly more narrow margin statewide with 57 percent of the votes counted.
