May 1 Election Results

An Election Recap: 

The wins, the losses, and SO. MANY. RUNOFFS! May 1st’s election was a record-setting turnout for municipal participation across the county. 

TURNOUT 

First off, turnout was great! …for a local election. But you want to know what would be even better? If we all just voted in every election. 

Here are some turnout numbers (percentages are a percent of registered voters, not of the voting age population):

YearRegistered VotersVotes castPercent
2013892,54659,8896.71%
2015931,24384,2049.04%
20171,031,36488,8768.62%
20191,104,35392,1928.35%
20211,170,379165,89814.15%

and as a graph, it looks like this:

Trending upward is definitely a good sign. It took a lot of work and some big name elections to make it happen this way. If every Democratic voter votes in every election, hopefully we’ll be able to increase those turnout percentages even more. 

Your vote can make the difference--look at how many people AREN'T voting.

How the votes were cast: 

Absentee votes: 10,223

Early voting: 91,579
