Columbians head to the polls

Apr 3, 2012

The President of the United States may not be on the ballot, but there is still an important election in Columbia Tuesday. Voters in Columbia’s second and sixth wards will be electing new City Council members, while the rest of the city will vote on two new school board members and new tax levies. Columbia resident David Harrison said he'll stick to voting on the issues.

“The school bond issues, my ward is not even in the elections this time. I am mostly just voting for the school bonds and the levies,” Harrison said.

Some Columbia residents like Bonnie Bourne, just want to make their opinions heard. “I vote in every election because I am a citizen and I like the idea that I have a say in who the leaders of our community are,” she said.

Voters can vote until seven tonight.
