Eureka voter encourages county residents to register, vote

| September 23, 2022 7:00 AM

The Election Judges training class was held Sept. 12! The class was full of wonderful Lincoln County voters of every opinion, every political outlook.

One of the things barely discussed was voter turnout for our county in the June 7, 2022, primary election.

Our Secretary of State's website reports for the whole state of Montana, we had 293,049 voters cast ballots out of 743,710 registered, a 39.4% turnout.

And for Lincoln County, there were 14,802 registered voters with 5,652 votes cast, for a 38.18% turnout.

That means out of all the people who could've voted, we had less than 40% who actually did vote.

Let's encourage our friends and neighbors to join us in voting this November!!

Let's help wake up our voter base and encourage all to register.
