Good turnout in Novem­ber elec­tion

The Fresno Bee - - Opinion -

Fresno County was pro­jected to have at least 56 per­cent voter par­tic­i­pa­tion for the Novem­ber elec­tion. The in­creased voter par­tic­i­pa­tion should make our res­i­dents and elected of­fi­cials proud.

Fifty-six per­cent: we haven’t had that high of turnout in any midterm elec­tion af­ter the new mil­len­nium be­gan. I have been work­ing with Mi Fa­milia Vota, a na­tional civic en­gage­ment or­ga­ni­za­tion, for four and a half years, mak­ing this an es­pe­cially hope­ful mo­ment for me. I be­lieve that now, more than ever, we are go­ing to see some great changes in the Cen­tral Val­ley be­cause more and more peo­ple are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the elec­tion process. This in­cludes those who can vote and those who can in­spire vot­ers.

The elec­tion re­sults show us that our com­mu­nity is tak­ing ac­tion to de­fine who we want to be and how we want to be rep­re­sented. I am look­ing for­ward to the changes that our com­mu­nity is bring­ing forth.
