Turnout lags in special election

It is too late to mail ballots for the Nov. 5 special election, but there is still plenty of time to drop them off at the Wasco County Courthouse.

The election involves a $3.7 million bond to replace the failing municipal swimming pool in The Dalles. The 8,155 voters within the North Wasco County Parks and Recreation District are voting on the issue.

As of Friday evening, voter turnout had lagged compared to the 2011 ballot, which carried a similar, but more expensive measure. Turnout is at just 37.68 percent compared to 39.1 percent in 2011.
