After Wilson’s visit to Galvin’s office, a spokesman for Galvin said election observers will be sent to Lawrence today, but suggested that the assignments are routine.
“The (Secretary of State) will have observers in Lawrence, as we planned all along,” said spokesman Brian McNiff. “We’ve had them there before, in previous elections, and we intend to have them there tomorrow.”
The Eagle-Tribune was one of two news organizations on Sunday to allege voting irregularities in Lawrence. Fox 25 News, a Boston television station, reported finding four foreign citizens on the city’s voting rolls. The report found that those four were wrongly registered to vote through the Registry of Motor Vehicles, and did not register in Lawrence City Hall.
