It's supposed to be nice all day. Some passions are high, but turnout in off-year, off-month elections usually isn't all that great. Are people going to want to "stay the course" or are they more in a mood to "throw the bums out?"

I'd predict less than 10% of the eligible voters will even take the time to go vote. Statewide average will be in the 6-8%. Hope I'm wrong. If you don't vote, don't gripe!

Alas, you're probably more right than not.

It looks like turnout is better than I expected (for Chilhowie, anyway) -- although when I voted, there were more candidates (all of them except Gary Hafer, I think), poll workers (seven or eight), and assorted political groupies (five or six) than there were voters (me). I have no feel for how this bodes for anyone in particular -- they all seemed happy and optimistic. If you haven't voted yet, there's still time (the polls won't close until seven). Go get 'em, tiger...

i cant believe it. I honestly thought Chilhowie had a chance this time. How can people be satisfied with the status quo?

The status quo is comfortable, non-threatening, and doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain. Replacing the mayor and half the town council in one fell swoop is the closest thing to a revolution than most folks around here would ever see. At least we got one of 'em in. At that rate, the town will be in pretty good shape by the time I will have already been dead for a few years!
