EL PASO — El Pasoans apparently haven't been inspired to go to the polls this year, at least compared to the last presidential election. More than 96,000 people in the county voted early this election. Most turned out last Friday. However, that's far below the more than 114,000 that came out for the 2008 election.
El Pasoans have from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6 to voice their political opinions. Polling places are attached on this story for download, or can be found here: http://www.epcounty.com/elections/current/PollingPlaces110612.pdf
Locally and nationally it's been roller-coaster ride of an election campaign, which finally concludes Tuesday. America wil decide if President Barack Obama gets a second term or Republican challenger Mitt Romney will move into the White House in January. El Paso will determine the passage of three heated propositions on the Quality of Life bond involving El Paso revitalization at costs exceeding tens of millions. Locally, the hot seats included U.S. Reps, Districts 16 and 23, State Senator, District 29, State Representative District 78, and Precinct 1 and 3 County Commissioners.
News Channel 9 will not air local newscasts at 5 and 6, and will resume at 10 p.m. in between national NBC coverage of the elections.
