Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

Only 109 city residents cast their vote in last week's election

 

The Special Election in the City of Trenton to elect a Streets Commissioner drew just six percent of the City’s registered voters last week as Tommy Lowery won the seat with only 41 votes.

Donald Taylor received 35 votes and David Moore had 33.

The light voter turnout came after three weeks of early voting, that resulted in 65 people casting ballots and on Election Day, with the polls being open 12 hours only 44 voters turned out.

Early voting is supposed to increase voter turnout with the extended time to vote but that hasn’t seemed to have any effect here. It seems people have forgotten the price that has been paid over the years to secure our right to vote. A lot of people all over the world would love to have the opportunity to vote and we seem to forget what a privilege it is.
