Election Day is always a hectic day, especially when it comes time to coordinate voting with school traffic.
In some communities, public schools opt to close on Election Day for various reasons including safety and ease of access to the polls.
Here in Newton, 16 of the city's 26 polling locations are public schools, all of which stay open during Election Day.
Woburn Public Schools stay open as well, but after Sen. Scott Brown stopped by Woburn's Reeves Elementary School yesterday, some parents took to Facebook to express their concern about safety of students on Election Day.
Tell us how you feel: Should Newton schools close during the election? Or should the city keep students in schools and use it as a teachable moment? Tell us in the comments below.
