Our View: The time is now for even-year elections
Well, the results are in, and we can't say we're surprised.
Of the 54,540 people registered to vote in the South Washington County School District, exactly 4,009 turned up at the polls Nov. 8 to cast their vote for School Board.
In case you're counting, that's just a titch above 7 percent turnout. Not that that's anything new. (In all fairness, this year's vote did garner larger turnout over 2009 numbers. By about 600 votes.)
