Tuesday’s special election in Augusta County caught most voters unaware and so there was a tiny turnout for one unopposed candidate. Now we have the numbers of how much that cost.
Here’s what I wrote Tuesday toward the end of the day:
Raise your hand if you didn’t know there was a special election today in Augusta County. Better yet, raise your hand if you did know because that would be far less hands. According to reports, there was a pitiful turnout for the uncontested contest — as in six voters by 6pm in Churchville, according to a source in the area. Six voters since 6am.
