More Turnout News

This time from Lincoln Logs, an SOB Alliance member:
Low turnout. Last year when I voted just before 8am, I was number 64. This year I am number 14. That tells me that turnout is going to be exceeding low. Probably 20-30% in my ward.
Best of luck to Matt as he is also on the ballot running for his County Central Committee (unopposed).

My Dad reported from Highland county that as of 8:30 this morning he was #7 - normally at that time he should easily have been in the fifties.

This is not good. I really prefer a high turnout, that way we really know that the will of the People is being done.

I agree in principle that low numbers are a travesty. BUT - low numbers will help hard-core conservatives get more of the right candidates nominated today. I think the rain helps Blackwell, Pierce, Grendell, O'Brien, etc.

Chad, honestly, I think Blackwell would win even with high turnout. As far as advancing the agenda, I would really like to see an election where I could tell where we've spotted the ball...we'll not get that with a low turnout. But if it helps Pierce, Grendell, and O'Brien, then there is a silver lining to this particular storm cloud.
