I think it's sad to hear that of all the people who live in the unincorporated areas of the Crescenta Valley, only 433 of us chose to show up and vote for whom we want to represent us. Curious though if this is average, unusually low or even perhaps a high turnout?

@Chuck - Thanks for commenting. I'm not sure if that's average or different from the past. Let me check with CV Town Council and get back to you about it.

While we had a better turnout this year than last, it all depends on the number of candidates running for office on the CV Town Council. When only 6 run, they are all automatically either 3 year regular members or at least one year alternate members. Therefore less interest to get out the vote by the candidates and less interest by the residents. We need more people to run next year so we will have a highly contested election. Any questions on the election, email me at danette7@charter.net and I will try to answer. BTW we had 433 votes cast by 212 voters. One can vote for up to 3 candidates, many choose to only vote for their favorite candidate. I read the low turn out as a vote of approval that what we are doing is ok. Only when there is controversy or a "hot" issue do we get a great turnout. Remember we are all volunteers on the town council but we do appreciate the community's show of support by voting. Let us know if you want to run next year.
