Turnout light in District 2

Jul 27, 2010 4:35:00 PM - thestate.com
Turnout has been light across Columbia's District 2 City Council precincts today as voters returned to the polls to elect their first new representative in 27 years.

By 3 o'clock, 87 people had voted at Ward 9, where 162 people voted two weeks ago. The precinct only had one electronic voting machine in anticipation of the expected low turnout, said precinct clerk Audrey Snead.

Mannietta Cain, 69, arrived to vote at about 2:45 wearing a straw hay to protect her from the sun.

"Here we go again," she said as poll workers checked her name off a list of registered voters.

Today is the sixth time in four months District 2 voters have voted, including April's mayoral election and runoff and the June party primaries.
