Salem has 16,595 registered voters, down from about 23,000 voters last year, but Wall said the numbers are slightly misleading.
"We purged people from the list who haven't voted in the last four years, who were deceased or moved out of town," she said.
"But registration has been pretty steady. We've had about five or 10 people coming in per day to register. Undeclared voters are up."
