Straw Poll held in Cherokee
Cherokee County received a grant from the Iowans with Disabilities (IDAction) this year, and the county has used the funds for several activites related to the upcoming November 4th general election.
On Tuesday October 21, Cherokee County Community Service Director Lisa Langlitz co-ordinated a "straw poll" for members of the community, and Cherokee County Work Services graciously allowed the use of their facility. All present practiced voting, casting their "ballots" in the Presidential election.
The CCWS consumers also prepared a meal for participants, and several local candidates for office in the November 4 election accepted an invitation from the consumers and joined them for lunch.
Following lunch, the candidates spoke about why they were running for office.
I think everyone's ready for the "big day."
By the way, McCain won this poll, 18-17.
