Voter Turnout

I hit'em all. Jury duty, anyone?

Predictions of a low voter turnout were, by and large, correct. But here are some numbers for your consideration:

Mayoral primary, February 22, 2011
Number of votes cast: 45,040

Mayoral general, March 22, 2011
Number of votes cast: 70,382

Earnings Tax referendum, April 5, 2011
Number of votes cast: 73,459

So it looks like tax votes bring out the ballots the best. Don't get too excited though. We are still only talking about around 20% of registered voters.

I don't believe there will be much of any voting until 2012 now.
