On the last of 11 days of early voting in Cambridge, there was turnout of 2,872 people at the city’s five polling places, setting an 11-day record and totaling 19,514 citywide.

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 27.3 percent of everyone who could cast a ballot in the city.
