Voter Turnout Above Average For School Issue

Candidate advice. If you want to get elected, contact the “Friends” of Boise Schools–they know how to get out the vote. For a single ballot question with little personality, no religious issues, or gender gaps the turnout was great in Ada County–a Whopping 29%.

Compared to the Boise mayor/council election the turnout was nearly double. In Dave Bieter’s landslide election, 89% of registered voters declined to vote for him. Turnout in that election was 16% and he got 69% of the votes cast–which was a mere 11% of registered voters.

Here’s how the school levy vote broke down according to the county election office:
