Voters: Interested to watch turn out of local, statewide races

Community

Primary day in Ohio County, and voters in Triadelphia said they’re excited to see the outcome of some of these local issues on the ballot.

“The school board, I want to see how that levy turns out. I hope people will support it for better schools which will help the area,” said Triadelphia resident Vernon Anderson.

Anderson said he is closely watching statewide races too, especially one getting national attention.

“The number of people running for senate, that’s an issue. We’ll see how that turns out,” said Andseron.

Mark Moses said it’s his third time voting, and he likes to come prepared.

“I want to know more about the candidates you know research more about them and think ok, my conscience is saying vote for this person, vote for that person,” said Moses.

Several voters in Triadelphia said they weren’t able to cast their ballot.

Ohio County election coordinator Toni Chieffalo said early this morning precincts did have some trouble opening the poll books. Now, she said voting should be quick and easy.

“I saw others having some trouble, but I didn’t have any trouble,” said Anderson.

Mark said he hopes his friends come out to the polls.

“I know a lot of older people do it, but you know young people need to do it because you need your voices heard,” said Moses.

For Vernon who has never missed an election, he doesn’t take the priviledge for granted.

“Even when I was in the Navy, I voted an absentee ballot on the ship. It’s my duty to vote. Everyone should vote,” said Anderson.

Remember you will need your identification at the polls this year. They will close at 7:30 p.m.
