Doug1066 Posted March 8 #1 Share Posted March 8 It was another boring election day at Precinct 007. We didn't even have a good wind to blow our signs around. Altogether, 56 people out of 514 voted (10.9%) , counting one provisional ballot which I think will be sustained. The statewide ratio was 62-38 against. So now we can start the Wednesday-morning quarter-backing. I think those who supported the measure but did not vote deserve what they got. Ever stop to wonder how much an election costs? Three precinct workers paid $330 for the day, times 29 precincts times 66 counties = 631,620 dollars. That's not counting the cost of printing all those ballots on special paper, the cost of the machines, the cost of counting the ballots and so on. Total cost of this single-issue election approaches one million dollars. We have another election coming up next month. It is a run-off and not every precinct will be involved. Maybe I can catch up on my sleep. Doug 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
