Be sure to share this report on the Comparison of Voter Turnout by St. Paul Planning District by Type of Election by Selected Demographics 2010 & 2012. The report compares turnout for state, federal, and county commissioner races. It may come as no surprise that the lowest turnout is for the commissioner races. Yet, the county controls so much of what affects people's daily lives such as roads, parks, libraries, water, sewer, social services, judicial services, law enforcement, and on and on. County commissioner races are regularly uncontested with residents being unaware of who is running and what they stand for. Let's work to change this!
