The Special Election for the casino referendum already has a major head start in voting this week as some 601 absentee ballots had been filed with the Election Department by Tuesday afternoon.

There was still time to file more absentee ballots, but the 601 figure is 100 ballots more than were filed in the overall City Election on Nov. 5, which contained a casino ballot question and a general election for City Council and School Committee.

Election Commissioner Diane Colella said they are preparing for the Feb. 25 election and have already seen a flurry of activity, including the large numbers of absentee ballots.

She said there were 25,711 registered voters in the Special Election.
