Conway Votes

I’m proud of my little town. Yesterday was election day for the mayoral runoff. I came very near missing voting because I’ve been out of town and forgot about it. Luckily, it was before 7 PM when that realization hit. But, for a runoff election with only one contest, held two days before Thanksgiving, the turnout was 60% of the general election ballots. That seems really good to me. I’ve seen runoffs at similar sized towns where the victor has a 100 to 80 vote margin, or something pathetic like that. Add in that it was cold and storming like mad all day, and you’ve got you a burst of civic participation. Way to go, Conway SC.
