Your ballots are only secret if you vote election day in person. When you vote early in person there is a number put on your ballot that links it back to you. Voting by mail, you have to sign and it also has information linking the ballot back to you.

The ballot is secret. Nobody knows for sure who voted for who (or is whom?)

Sorry... meant to say 907 active GOP voters... not 1265 as I mistakenly wrote below. duh!

Anyone else have 2 cents to share?

Not an election analyst, but since no else has stepped forward, I'm going to speculate here anyway.

It appears that Washington has 2172 active voters out of a population of about 9,000. (I wonder how many of the 9,000 are children.)

It appears we have 1265 Democrat voters and 1265 GOP voters.
Since GOPers Ceres & Tex lost, it shows that the GOPers didnt choose them. The GOP mayoral candidate got 899 likely GOP votes. If those same voters had turned out for Ceres and Tex, they would have won.

Lou got 879 votes so it looks like the GOP did turn out for her.

Ellen w 747 votes likely got the city elite votes from the chamber of commerce crowd, both GOP and Dem.

Anyone else want to add their 2 cents worth?
