Polls Are Closed!

It's about 9pm and results are available, yet.

For anybody who really cares, here are the results from my last election. That was an actual contested race (3 seats open, 4 people running). It was also a contest for mayor. At 172 votes I wasn't exactly blazing a trail, but I also was only in the Village for 3 years.

This year my tally will be less. How do I know this? Well, when I got back into the Village to cast my vote it was about 6PM. At that time I was ballot number 119. Yeah, just a fewer amount of voters turned out this time. Well, one there really is no contest (3 people are up for 3 seats). Add to that that today is the first bad weather day this year. Low voter turn out.

When the results are in, you'll be able to see them from the links right here.

I'd vote twice.

Thanks. You all are the best.

It's sort of upsetting me that when I checked this morning they had most of the results posted, but not the Orwell Village Council. A prodding email was sent. We'll see what effect it has.

Hell, I'd rig the Diebold machines in Florida for you, Steve. Maybe even hang a few chads, so to speak.

Congratulations.

Jim, well, if I ever need that service, I now know whom to call. :) Thanks.

Thanks Greeny, Yep, with 80 votes that's 70% of those that bothered to vote.
