At 11:45 this primary election day morning I was the 57th vote at Iowa City's precinct 17. I got to chat with J.C. Dem Tom Carsner's Mom, Virginia, who is one of the willing and able pollworkers. As of 11 am, 719 voters have turned out to cast a ballot in Johnson County. It almost seems like a waste of democracy, doesn't it?
By the way, if you haven't voted and decide to write-in a candidate in a race where there is no competitor, you must also bubble in the oval next to "write-in" for it to be counted.
Hopefully because of the early torrential rains in the area, the turnout will increase later today.
