Franklin County Clerk Debby Door Expects the Voter Turnout to be Between 70% and 73%

Franklin County Clerk Debby Door expects the voter turnout tomorrow to be somewhere between 70% and 73%. Door also says that a closely contested race for several offices could cause the turnout to be even higher than the 2008 election with 73.8%. The actual act of voting will be no different than in past elections. Voters will still have the choice between a paper ballot or a touch screen. The implementation of I-Pads into the election process will not have an effect on voting, but will affect the signing in process that used to be done with a precinct roster. The large blue books took time to look up information with names listed in alphabetical order. The I-Pads find the information instantly and are intended to reduce wait times significantly.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
