A Few Numbers
|I always enjoy going back over the numbers after an election.
15,123 Loudon County voters went to the polls in this election. A tad over 60% voted early.
With more than 33,000 registered voters that means we voted around 45%. That's awful low but we still voted a higher number than the national average. If you discount the inactive voters on the rolls the percentage could be as high as 42%
In the Loudon City council election, 1,104 voters didn't vote for four council candidates. This would suggest that a lot of voters made a single shot vote. But even with that, Jeff Harris carried the entire city ballot by a wide margin.
Lenoir City officials were walloped in their third attempt to eliminate the elected Treasurer/Recorder position. We'll discuss that in a little more detail later.
