The low turnout on an election day featuring only city council and municipal judge races is predictable, but still disheartening. In a city sitting near an estimated 94,000 residents and 65,000 registered voters, only 6,400 cast a ballot in yesterday's municipal election — for those who enjoy a little math that's 9.5 percent. According to the Jackson County Election Board, 12.88 percent of registered voters hit the polls yesterday. An ever-so-slight increase from 12.31 percent in 2004.
Rob Binney (District 1), Craig Faith (District 2), Phyllis Edson (District 3), and Chris Moreno (District 4), each won seats on the City Council. James Tobin defeated Amanda Robinson to maintain his seat as municipal judge. See below for full results from the election.
