I was the 109th person at my polling place, C.S. Porter School. That was not an encouraging sign.
First, we expected turnout in this election to be low. I’m expecting, with the absentee ballots to be counted later tonight, that there’ll be just 1,300 people voting in this election at the most, and 700 at the least.
Turnout is expected to be around 25% to 30%, and what’s more, Democrats will probably turnout in fewer numbers than Republicans.
All of those things hurt me. The one consolation is that the sheriff’s race and the county attorney’s race are both on the Democratic ticket, and that might increase some of that turnout for me.
While I’m not sure if I’ll get any of that crossover vote, I’ll sure welcome it nonetheless.
Maybe I should have spent that last $126 – but again, that does nothing for me.
Nope, it’s all coming down to the counts that start when polls close in an hour, at 8 PM.
I’ll put up another post tonight when it’s all said and done.
