Your Vote Counts!

...if you choose to exercise that right. Here's some trivia from recent elections in Post Falls. In May 2007 with the decision to add two council positions on the ballot, 238 votes were cast. With 10, 209 registered voters that means that 9,971 citizens did not vote. Our population is nearing 24,000.
In November 2005, the most recent city election for mayor and council seats, just 1,325 people voted out of 9,956 registered voters.
The good news is that from May of this year to August the number of voters registered has increased to 10,209. Let's have a great turnout on November 6!
