June Updates from the Rowan Republicans!
Thank you for turning out to vote in the Primary! The voter turnout for Rowan County for the Primary was 20.43%. The heaviest portion of that was Republicans and Unaffiliated Voters voting on the Republican ballot. Prof Bitzer had predicted a 15% voter turnout.
Thank you to all our candidates. You all worked hard. If you have signs for other candidates from your cleanup efforts, you may bring them to the headquarters. Please minimize the dirt! Candidates, you can pick up signs, as appropriate, when the headquarters is open. The headquarters is now open Monday through Friday, 9-12. Candidates proceeding to the General Election, we encourage you to keep some signs in the headquarters. I was impressed as I drove around the county on May 18 how many signs were already gone! Well done!
Again, we'd like to thank our June Headquarters sponsor - Bill Graham! Thank you for your support.
