Turnout was low for last Friday’s Bruce Franks, Jr. v. Penny Hubbard Re-Vote for 78th District State Representative.
The 7th Ward came in second to 9th Ward, Franks’ home ward.
But we had two weeks to pull this off and we did it! The 7th Ward voted 86.51% for Franks.
Thank you to everyone who came out in the rain and participated in democracy. And a special shout out to the 7th Ward voters who enthusiastically went to their polling place at Sigel School on Friday, only to realize they are in the 79th District and it was not an election day for them.
