In the News: election turnout, stormy weather, new comment system

Senate race: Fair turnout as area goes for Gomez 
Turnout was higher than expected Tuesday as Milford-area residents cast their ballots, mostly for Republican Gabriel Gomez, in the U.S. Senate special election.

Stormy weather tonight and for the rest of the week 
The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a special weather statement for possible strong thunderstorms for the Southern New England area, including Middlesex County.

New, improved Milford Daily News commenting system aims to build, improve conversations on our website 
On Thursday, Milford Daily News will launch a new set of social and interactive features underneath online articles. Our goal is to enhance the experience by giving readers new ways to interact with each other, share opinions and engage with the news.

Editorial: Commenting, with honesty and civility
For some time, we’ve received complaints that the anonymous commenting system we’ve hosted on our online stories does little to enhance the conversation within our community. The criticism has been that some of the comments are hateful and sometimes, downright objectionable. We heard you and we agree.
