Warded off

Half of the eight seats for City Council were up for grabs today, and since the Ward 2 incumbent chose not to run again, there were two questions yet unresolved. (The other one: how does a city of 650,000 get by with only eight wards?)

The polling place, as usual for elections at this level, had about three poll-watchers per voter. At 5:03 pm I cast ballot number 195 in precinct number, um, 195. This is perhaps disappointing when you consider that at least 1251 voters — the number voting in the gubernatorial race — turned out for the 2018 fall extravaganza.

But so be it. Good luck to the winner, whoever that might be.
