First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By Roxanne Mole­nar, ed­i­tor

Votes are still be­ing counted, but Elec­tion Day 2018 is of­fi­cially over.

I’m ready for an end to all the po­lit­i­cal junk mail that has been hit­ting my house and my email.

And those at­tack ads on TV? I’m ex­cited by the thought of those go­ing away. If they never came back, in any elec­tion go­ing for­ward, I would be OK with that, although I know that’s a dream that is un­likely to be­come re­al­ity.

I’m also ready to say farewell to the cam­paign signs on the cor­ners all over the city. I don’t mind them so much when they are set back a lit­tle bit, but some this year block vis­i­bil­ity for driv­ers.

How­ever, if any of these ef­forts con­nected with some­one, and sent them to the polls, then that ef­fort was worth it.

Ul­ti­mately, the most an­noy­ing part of elec­tions is voter ap­a­thy. So to those of you who made vot­ing a pri­or­ity — thank you!
