(NECN: Greg Wayland, Boston) - Voters are casting their ballots in Massachusetts' special election for U.S. Senate, with Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez as the top two candidates.

But at last check, voter turnout is nearly half of what it was at the last special election.

Voters at an elementary school in Quincy, Mass. say they feel compelled to vote.

One voter says he's voting because it's his civic duty.

"That's what makes America America," he says.

"It is very important to vote. Everyone should cast their vote to make sure we make a difference," says another voter.
