We Can't All Be Washingtons, But We Can All Be Patriots!
This page will take you straight to the Virginia State Board of Elections page -
Read it for yourself.
A City populated with more than 24,000.
13,00 registered to vote.
Only 1,100 voted and School Board Members and City Council Members are elected with less than 100 votes!
Oh, did I mention that they ran unopposed?
One City Council Member elected by a 22 vote margin.
In one Ward only 98 people (out of 8,000 before redistricting) voted!
That election cost was $11,000.00.
This is discouraging. On the bright side - if we identify good candidates - we only have to get the number out to beat the other guy - which probably isn't a large number. Thanks for sharing Michael.
