What an amazing turnout we had!!! The numbers are:
In-person early vote totals – 35,679
Received absentee ballots – 2,730 (can continue to receive these through Election Day)
Total Votes Cast as of November 4, 2016 – 38,409
Based on the registered number of voters the Secretary of State uses (active registered voters) which is 81,773 – we voted almost 47% already! Outstanding!! ~~~Disclaimer~~~ I am tired so I hope my math is right!!! J
Thank you to all the wonderful people who made this possible. The voters and election staff were awesome!!
Please remind everyone – there is no voting on the Monday before the election – and voters must go to their assigned precinct on Election Day.
