Quiet at the polls

Emmet Town Clerk Deb Carlson, left, was the only voter at the town hall Tuesday at noon to cast a ballot for the 37th Assembly District position. Poll workers Connie Weissenrieder, center, and Cassie Gamble, right, checked the clerk’s identification. On the ballot for the special election were Republican William Penterman, Democrat Pete Adams, both of Columbus, and Independent Stephen Ratzlaff of DeForest. As of noon, 89 Town of Emmet residents had cast ballots. In the Republican primary election last month, a total of 140 Town of Emmet residents voted. The 37th Assembly District seat is open with the departure of John Jagler of Watertown, who now represents the 13th Senate District. Also in a portion of Dodge County, there was a recall election for a county board supervisor representing the Neosho area.
