Turnout for today's Boise school board election is super-low. I voted about an hour ago at my neighborhood school (Hawthorne), and I was only the 17th voter in more than six hours. Ouch. But what do they expect when they hold an election with almost no publicity, the day after a three-day holiday weekend?
Update 10:15 p.m.: The incumbents (Nancy Gregory and Janet Orndorff) won. Sorry, Jeff. And sorry, Boise. Turnout was an abysmal 1.19%, with fewer than 1,200 voters casting ballots. More here.
