I voted this morning in the Dubuque Community School District's board election and referendum on the renewal of the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy.
I usually vote before heading to the office. That way, if my plans change (remember, the 2001 school board vote was on 9/11), or if I get hit by a bus later in the day, at least my vote will have been cast.
Anyway, when I voted today, the polls had been open 68 minutes, and I was only voter No. 10 at my site. I know that local school board elections often suffer low turnout, but this is pretty grim.
Let's hope that the pace picks up during the day and evening. The polls close at 8 p.m.
Results available tonight on THonline.com.
