Also, did it look young and female or more like a meeting of the NRA?

Mayor, council, school board, etc. I think issue 1 is driving some turnout, but not sure which way. Seems heavy for a normal local election year. Also feels like the momentum that defeated the issue in August has waned a bit. I hope not. We also have several Moms for Liberty school board candidates in our county probably bringing for and against crowds to the polls.

Looked like a representative crowd to me. Our county is purple leaning toward red, so it's hard to tell. I mean, if you saw my white, bearded, middle-aged self in line you would peg me for MAGA. I'm really just a pair of Oakley blades shy of the uniform.

Edited to add, we would have voted anyway but Issue 1 was on our minds when we decided to go today in case something unexpected happened Tuesday.
