Residents Hit the Polls in Presidential Primary, Local Elections on Tuesday

 

After a long campaign season, candidates could do nothing but wait as residents went to the polls to cast their vote on who they felt would lead them best. Fifteen percent of all registered voters in the District came out to vote in the primary a 5 percent increase from the 2011 election.  This election has had its share of drama. Scandals have forced one council member, Harry Thomas Jr. from his seat with possible jail time after he was charged with felony counts of theft and filing a false tax return. Due to the vacant seat Ward 5 is holding a special election, taking place on May 15. There were several positions that received under votes, when a voter chooses not to vote on a specific race or issue.  The official count was done April 13, after all votes received.
