I’ve been told the turnout numbers for the election are 7,149.
That’s a sizeable increase over last Fall, which was 6,666. And a year ago, they used secure-site online voting. I thought they actually increased turnout.
From my experience, it’d seemed like there was more voter apathy than last year. Guess not.
Maybe it’s the VP race that upped turnout, or the 4 candidates, or the joke party. Dunno. Given the Alligator non-endorsement and (prior to that) general trashing of just about everybody, I thought that’d actually turn voters off, since there was no clear “good guy” put forward.
Guess nobody reads the Alligator.
