– TURNOUT MAY BE DETERMING FACTOR IN FINAL RESULTS
Your vote will count more than ever if the turn out in tomorrow’s Primary is as low as pollsters expect. Early voting had very few people showing up. That could be because people were still making up their minds about who to vote for, because they don’t trust the early voting count, or both.
Early expectations are for about a 16-percent voter turnout, which makes your vote all that more meaningful.
There are contested races for U.S. senator, Governor, Superintendent of Schools, and U.S. Congress.
Here in Jasper County we are being asked to vote for another ESPLOST—a 1% sales tax that will go to pay on the debt for the new High School. District 4 Commissioner, Craig Salmon, and District 2 Commissioner, Bruce Henry, are not being opposed by any other Republican candidate.
Remember, if you think the commissioner that “represents” your district is not doing a good job, do NOT mark the box. Leave it blank. That would be the only way to send a message that you don’t like how you are being represented. You can still vote for anyone else you want, but you never have to mark the box of someone you don’t agree with just because they are the only one on the ballot.
Most of all—VOTE TOMORROW—your vote will make a difference! If you don’t know where to go to vote, call 706-468-4903 and ask.
