Ballot-shortage skinny from the SoS

Here's what Brian McNiff, spokesman for secretary of state Bill Galvin, told me a few minutes ago about ballot shortages in Boston:

"We understand that what happened was, some precincts ran low. They called in, and the Boston Police were shipping [additional ballots] out by cruiser. And anybody who is in line will get to vote, even if it's past 8 pm. If they're in line at 8, they vote."

Next I asked McNiff if some precincts had actually completely run out of ballots. His reply: "I think a couple did run out briefly, but they've been replenished."

Any Bostonians out there care to share what transpired when you hit the polls?
