Poll indicates few turned out for 2007 election

Monday, November 12, 2007

If the recent Brazil Times' website poll numbers are any indication, Clay County did experience a low voter turnout during the 2007 elections.

Elections took place Nov. 6, with Ann Bradshaw being selected Mayor of Brazil, defeating Jim Sheese.

In addition, Karen McQueen won the Brazil City Clerk/Treasurer spot after being elected over Janet Wallace.

Other election winners on Nov. 6 included City Council members Pat Heffner, Brad Deal, Sam Glover, Steven Lamb and William Lovett; Center Point Clerk/Treasurer Roger Campbell, in addition to council members Roy Smith, Cindy Gray and Daniel Brand; Clay City Clerk/Treasurer Denetta Hane, in addition to council members Guy Dickerson, Richard Sutton and Robert Freeman; and Harmony Clerk/Treasurer Donna Mullinix, along with council members Elmer Pollard Sr., Leslee McDonald, Don McCollister and Opal Gooch.

According to poll numbers, only 28.86 percent (1,771 out of 6,137) of registered Clay County voters voted this year.

In The Brazil Times' latest website poll, only 65 people voiced an opinion.

The Times asked how did residents vote: Democrat or Republican?

Of the 65 people that voted in the poll, 35 (53.8 percent) said Republican while 46.2 (30 people) said Democrat.

Of those 65 people that responded to the poll question, only two voiced an opinion.

The Brazil Times latest poll has a bit of a twist.

The Indianapolis Colts, winners of Super Bowl XLI, have lost two consecutive games, falling to undefeated New England and losing to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, 23-21.

The Times is asking its readers which NFL team has what it takes to win the Super Bowl this year. The teams included in the poll are the Colts, Patriots, Chargers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers.
