Adams County Election Turnout at 68%

When Abraham Lincoln was elected as the 16th President of the United States 82% of the registered voters went to the polls.  It’s been a long time since we have seen that kind of a turnout in recent elections.  It was obvious to me the turnout was up when I went to my polling place.  Some 832 people had voted before me by 10:30 that morning. Usually it’s around 450.  According to Adams County Clerk Georgia Volm, the turnout as of this writing was at 68.23%. Up significantly over past elections but in my opinion still not good enough. In Adams County, Illinois there are 45,172 registered voters and only 30,819 took the time to vote.

I guess I should be happy with 68% but a percentage around what Lincoln got during his presidential election would be more my liking.  There’s is 15,000+ people out there that need to join in next time. You do make a difference.
