I was the 425th person to vote in my precinct. The ladies there said the precinct that votes in the same place had similar numbers. I'd say that's a fairly good turn out for one ballot question in April.
On a related note, I happen to vote next to the Northeast Council of Governments office because the Aberdeen Armory, where I usually vote, is under repair. On the NECOG wall is a poster that has the population trends for all the counties in Northeast South Dakota between the 1990 and 2000 censuses. Guess what, every county lost population except one, which grew at a rate of .3%, or essentially stagnant. Yet change would be bad. Really bad. Or so some say. Go here to easily research population trends in our area. For example, see that from 2000 to 2005 Brown County lost 2.1% of its population. I've said it before and I will say it again: managing growth is hard, but managing decline is horrible.
