Gray not worried who wins, but how many vote
The co-president of the League of Women Voters Clemson area, Seneca resident Sandra Gray, is worried that next week’s special primary election for Seat Three, Oconee County Council might draw only light voting. And, if that’s the case, it’ll make for the second recent election that most voters ignored. This month’s Seneca city council election, in spite of eight candidates for four seats, drewa voting percentage in the low teens. Gray hopes that doesn’t happen April 1 when Paul Cain and Andy Inabinet meet in their first election for the open seat. “People are not motivated to vote when it’s just a single contest like that. We are concerned,” Gray told 96.3/WGOG NEWS. On Election Day, Gray would like to see reminders to vote—-such as a banner downtown and wording on the marquee in front of the polling place, the Shaver Recreation Complex.
