Light Turnout For Early Voting

Saturday is election day.  Based upon early voting results there seems to be very little interest in the election.  There is only one issue on the ballot, the renewal of the Library tax.

A total of 123 ballots were cast early.  Of those, 73 were absentee meaning that only 50 people took the time to go vote.  Here is a demographic breakdown of those voting early:

Male – 46. Female – 77.

Black – 35. White – 85.  And  other – 3.

Democrats – 57. Republicans 56.  And other – 3.

The Journal checked the library’s social media page and found the most recent post to be in March.  Going back over a year, we found no post that mentioned that the library tax was coming up for renewal.

If you did not vote early and if you have an opinion on renewing their tax, your last opportunity to express your opinion is Saturday.  So go vote in person.
