Not so much interest

Apparently there’s less interest in the mayoral race than the vast quantity of hype suggested: I showed up at 4:58 and cast ballot #358. This is not a sign of heavy turnout. (Second in line at check-in is similar.)

Of course, the polls opened at 7 am, and roads were generally impassable at that hour. (I know. I was already at work.) Maybe it will pick up when the usual morning crowd gets off work.

    I’m curious about the vote totals by ward; if Councilman Shadid lost by such a wide margin I can’t imagine he did well even there…

    I live in a Shadid stronghold in Ward 2; Cornett carried my precinct, 256-224. This is about 53 percent, less than Cornett’s citywide percentage, but still a comfortable margin. However, Shadid carried the precinct just to my south, 129-86.

    Incidentally, the tiny sliver of OKC that sticks into Pottawatomie County split 2-2 between Cornett and Shadid.
