Town of Wakaw

Despite the blizzard-like conditions on Monday November 9, 2020 local municipal elections went on as scheduled. While turn-out numbers were low in all areas, undoubtably the weather was a major factor in some people’s minds when it came to voting on Monday, but regardless the number of votes cast the results stand. Wakaw CAO Lois Gartner stated that the turn-out was 80 less votes cast than four years ago. Since enumeration does not take place prior to municipal elections, officials look at the total number of residents to estimate how many ballots to have prepared. Gartner added that typically if there is a major issue facing the town or municipality the voter turnout is much higher. Good weather also helps as the advanced poll had a very good turnout. The new councils will sit for their first meetings in December for towns and rural municipalities that meet only once a month and for those who hold two meetings per month their first council meeting will be next week.

In Wakaw 268 votes were cast.
