Some polling officials are citing today’s weather as the reason people are coming out to vote.

“We’re having a good turnout,” said Election Judge Sharry Lewis, in regards to her precinct at the , 200 S. Lindsey Lane. “I think the weather is definitely playing a part in people coming out.”

A precinct judge at , 190 Lily Cache Lane, said they’d had about 50 people cast their votes by noon.

Nichole Selock is one resident who made it out to the polls today.

"I wanted to vote on the referendum concerning the electricity bidding," she said.

 officials are asking for the authority.

Selock said she voted in favor of the refendum.

"I couldn't see the harm in using the market system in the economy to see if we can find better electric rates," she said. "If we couldn't find better rates, we wouldn't be any worse off than today, so why wouldn't we vote to find out? I also could not understand why this was even a 'votable' issue. Why wouldn't we want to use all our resources to see if there is a cheaper way for our local citizens? Voting yes for the referendum just made good common sense to me."
