Yesterday was the first time ever, city and school elections were held on the same day. Jasper County Auditor Dennis Parrott says the state legislature paired the City and school elections to save money and increase voter turnout. In Jasper County, the idea seems to have worked in terms of voter turn-out.
But local voter turn-out for this election reached 16.76-percent, as 4-thousand 364 of Jasper County’s registered 26-thousand 33 voters voted. As far as reducing election costs, Parrott says it’s too early to tell.
The results of last night’s election will not become official until they are canvassed by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors.
