Low turnout? No kidding.
I was lamenting the fact that I’d stupidly waited until 5 p.m. to go vote today, and figured I’d pay for that.
But when I arrived at my polling place, I thought they moved it. The church seemed to be empty. I nearly left. There was literally no line. At 5 o’clock. Whoa.
I knew the races were pretty boring locally, but I didn’t think it’d be this bad. Election Commissioner Dave Shively was predicting a “dismal” turnout, and he was right. However, I should have placed some wagers that the Raybould-Stevens County Board race would be close. So far, it’s a nail-biter. We’ll see as the night goes on…
