On the 10th of 11 days of early voting in Cambridge, there was turnout of 1,684 people at the city’s five polling places, making for a seven-day total of 16,642 citywide. Statewide, some 800,000 residents have voted early, according to the office of Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin.

Early voting, required by the state, began Oct. 24 and ends Friday; Election Day is Tuesday.

There are 71,370 registered voters this year in Cambridge (up from 63,325 last year), according to Election Commission figures lacking final mail-in registration figures, which puts the number of early voters in the city at 23.3 percent of everyone who could cast a ballot in the city.
