Clerks brace for big vote in Aug. 9 recall election
Local election clerks are preparing for a large turnout for next week's 10th State Senate District recall election.
"I am thinking that we'll be pretty busy. I think people are starting to realize that voting really counts -- every vote counts," said River Falls City Clerk Lu Ann Hecht.
She said just under 40% of the city's registered voters voted in the recall primary. Because of that high turnout, she raised the number of ballots she ordered for next week's election.
