After the first full week of early voting, only 214 Loudon voters have gone to the polls to vote in the special run off election. With a little more than twenty-eight hundred voters in the city, the turn out seems awfully low. There are still seven more days of early voting and of course election day. Hopefully the turn out will pick up. If not this could turn out to be one of the most expensive per vote elections we've ever seen.

I'll keep you posted.
