Many locations across the Ozarks are reporting light voter turnout today. Cities where light voter turnout has been reported include Joplin, Carthage, Neosho, Monett, Springfield, and Bolivar.
One community in the region is bucking that trend. Carl Junction is reporting heavy voter turnout, according to the Joplin Globe. In fact, turnout is as heavy as the 2008 Presidential election. That is quite a significant response. The big issue there: a service levy to help fund the purchase Briarbrook's Golf Course and Country Club.
It is good to see one community fired up about an issue.
