Voters Thoughts During The May Primary

The polls were busy this afternoon for the last hours of the May Primary.

Over at Seventh Day Adventist church on Taylor Street, voters in Zanesville exercised their constitutional right to vote in hopes to not only better themselves, but also the community.

"I thought that the one ballot which is for the judge is very important to us. And that is one of the big reasons why I came to vote today," said voter Charles Schilling.

"Real special to me," commented poll worker Robert Palmer, "is the Zanesville school levy because I am a retired school teacher so I’m real interested to see we continue the education of our children in Zanesville"

There were three issues on the Muskingum county ballot, one in particular, the annual motor vehicle license tax. Voters expressed their opinion on the proposed tax.

"I know it’s for the good of the roads and the bridges," said poll worker Jeff Bugglin, "but I think they need to find the money somewhere else"

"My understanding of the issue is that first they wanted the Commissioners to do it, and the Commissioners said lets let the voters decide," said Palmer. "I think that was a wise move and it’s up to the people of Muskingum county to decide whether we want to pay five dollars extra on our license fee for bridge work or whatever the work be."

The polls close this evening at 7:30 PM. WHIZ news will have coverage on radio, t-v and on our website. You can also find results on facebook and twitter.
