I am trying to contact anyone at patch to correct some critically wrong information on the Westfield article. The polls are NOT OPEN 6-9:30 as reported in that article but 7am-8pm. Another attempt to divert Democratic votes?????? as people who work or go to school might get the idea that they can vote late at the mall.....
