Looking at the unofficial 2011 School Board Elections in Sussex County I must say once again the voter turnout was dismal.
Delmar - Gum 105, Morelli 125, Total 230 voted
Indian River - Hattier 670, Walters 411, Total 1,081 voted
Laurel - Musser 210, Vanderslice 1,071, Total 1,281 voted
Seaford - Cannon 259, Maccoy 48, Smith 425, Total 732 voted
Woodbridge - Barr 285, Dewey 148, Total 433 voted
Since school district voters do not have to register you can not accurately guess at how many are eligible to vote but I would certainly say there must be at least 2,000 possible voters in the Delmar district. Only 230 can out to vote and this is an area where everyone says they support the kids and only 230 came out to elect someone who will decide the future direction of the school system. Shame, Shame on you non-voters, I guess we will hear from you when the school tax bill goes out.
