Quote of the Day | June 25, 2018

“Registration has gone up in the last five months by more than double the number it increased during the same period in 2014, with a net increase of more than 32,000 additional voters on the rolls since January of this year. We also had nearly 800 candidates file for office this year, which shattered the previous recent record for the most candidates to file in a year, 594, in 2006. All of these numbers are very encouraging, and we are hopeful we will see better turnout at the polls compared to four years ago.”
