Mayoral Elections: Speak Now, or Forever Hold Your Peace
WAH...WAH... WAH...WAH...WAH... WAH...WAH...WAH... WAH...WAH...WAH... WAH...
I think we can all agree that people love to complain. It's understandable because it's easy to point out the problem. The solution is the part people find more difficult and then even more difficult is the action to get the solution. Why am I saying all of this? Because today is the day for action. The time has come to put up or shut up. Today you can vote your mayor into office or you can continue to complain to no avail.
according to ktvb.com Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane says the runoff will look the same as the November general election for voters. The biggest difference, there is only one thing on the ballot.
This is interesting and something I was not aware of...
“The Boise mayor's race is only for the people within the city limits of Boise, not the rest of the community. It may be worth double-checking if you live near the border of the city, to make sure you are eligible to vote."
So who will win Bieter? McLean? Are you betting on anyone? Do you care? I personally hope that Boise wins. If you ask the experts or at least the people who are closest to the data meaning Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane this is what he told ktvb.
"we actually saw more absentee ballots go out for the runoff than went out for the actual election. We also saw high returns for absentee ballots as well as early voting, it was more active than we expected,"
Polls in Boise are open on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
