The Over Under

The title suggests that the content of this post would fit in with Melissa Long, Tracy Warner, and their desire to have a casino downtown. Sorry to disappoint. This post is about the under vote.

The under vote is a calculation of the difference between the top of the ticket and other candidates/ races on the same ballot. It gauges the effectiveness of candidates and their campaigns.

Historically, the under vote in FW municipal elections is between 4 and 5%. In 2003 and 2007 it was 2.5% and 2.0% respectively.

In the case of the 2007 election, the under vote tells us that the Kelty fiasco didn't keep people away from the polls. It just kept them away from the mayor's race.
