City begins counting ballots for April 2 municipal election


Ballots are being counted for the upcoming general municipal election. 

As of Thursday, 28,000 ballots have been turned in. Ballots are being checked through the clerk’s office’s signature verification process, and are being counted through their high-speed digital scanner. 

Ballots were mailed out March 8, and can be mailed back until Tuesday. After that, you’ll have to turn them in to one of the 24-hour drop boxes located throughout the city.

The clerk’s office said so far, the turnout is meeting the average. 

“We typically have between 30 to 40 percent turnout, which is amazing,” City Clerk Sarah Johnson said. “Elections back east don’t nearly get that many. So we typically have anywhere from 30 to 40 percent. We already have 10 percent, almost 11 percent turnout now, with those 28,000.”

Ballots can be turned in until 7 p.m. April 2.
