Seems that every time we have an election, I do this. And since I'm a creature of habit, I guess I'll do it again.
Tuesday's special election saw a higher turnout than expected. A whopping 23 percent. Of the county's 17,000-plus registered voters, only 4,000 of them bothered to cast their votes. Statewide, the turnout was only slightly better at 24 percent.
OK, quiet down. I can already hear your arguments.
"It was a special election and there was only one race on the ballot."
