Low turnout? No kidding.

by Deena Winter


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…

    Ray Stevens was the most kind and thoughtful fellow on the board and it is a shame he was defeated.
    Overtime people will see that the nursing home sale was a wise decision. Outside owners are always the most financially efficient means of ownership. Again, Lincoln/Lancanster
    residents are afraid of change!

    My polling place was busy at 5:30. Most voters had to wait several minutes for a booth. My wife reported similar business when she voted a little after 7.

    Jane, I’m curious about what you think about Hunter Management’s record in other states? They are one of the worst nursing care providers in the county. Just google Hunter Management, Eric Rothner, Avi Rothner and you’ll find all sorts of articles like this one

    There’s so many out there I could post them all day.

    Ray Stevens was a masterful politician and I’m sure manipulating your simple mind into liking him was as easy as Play Dough.
