For our Committee, three members will be elected for each precinct.

From Joel:
We broke our record for most website views on a single day. We had 627 views on Election Day this year. The rest of our website views for months prior to November were really low compared to most months in previous years, so I really wasn't expecting any type of growth on Election Day. We had 300 views on 11/6, which was also really high in comparison to previous years. Long story short, voters are really starting to use the website on a regular basis for candidate information for the primary and general elections.
