CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) -
Two state representative seats
will be up for grabs on Saturday and one will directly affect District 65. That
includes the City of Central, and resident Don York plans to make his voice
heard at the polls.
"I think it's important you vote.
It doesn't make a difference who you vote for but you need to vote," said York.
York and other voters in district
65 will decide between current Baton Rouge Councilman Scott Wilson who is in
his second term and local businessman Barry Ivey. Ivey, who declined our
request for an interview, heads into the election with the support of the
Republican Party of Baton Rouge and touts strong conservative values. Wilson,
also on the GOP ticket, is hoping his public service experience makes the
economic development, those are things that I've had experience with on the
Council and those are things I can bring to the table with the state
legislature and I'm looking forward to Saturday for the election," said Wilson.
Saturday the old middle school on
Hooper Road will be the primary location for voters in Central but while it
will be the first election of 2013, Secretary of State Tom Schedler says he is
still expecting a low turnout.
"We had a very dismal early
voting process just below 10 percent. I am certainly hoping for more than that.
We are predicting 17 or 18 percent. I'd be surprised if it goes above 20 and
very disappointed if it's below 15," said Schedler.
The idea of a low turnout at the
election has York believing each and every vote will be even more important.
"This is going to affect all of our lives in this district on how
they vote. What goes on for the old folks, what goes on for young folks and
education, so I just think they are missing it because if they don't vote they
ain't got no gripe," said York.
