Brief Commentary

The overall turnout was low for the State. Although actual numbers have not been published yet, our estimate is that it was at or below 10%. Many of these races (and the Primary of July 20) do not have opposition in November. This means that a significant portion of our State Legislature will be chosen by either very small portions of the State citizens or had no opposition at all. In all, over half of the State House and over 1/3 of the State Senate are unopposed in November.

Overall our list of recommendations fared very well in this runoff. A preliminary look at our voter guide distribution shows an increase of about 50% over 2002. This would place the margin of several races within the range of influence. This is a positive sign for the future of our grassroots effort.
