The head of the county election board had predicted up to a 40 percent voter turnout in Washington County in Tuesday's primary elections, but with light activity at polls during the day, she lowered that prediction to 20 to 25 percent by Tuesday night. With only seven of the county's 54 precincts reporting as of about 9:15 p.m., Kaye E. Robucci, director of the Washington County Board of Elections, could only offer a rough estimate of voter turnout. Robucci said she based her 20 percent to 25 percent turnout prediction on the fact that voting was light at polls in the early part of the day. “Usually, we have people lined up at the door, and it just wasn't there,” Robucci said.

One hundred and one years ago, the Illinois legislature passed a law authorizing “Mothers' Pensions,” and the entitlement sleigh ride was off and running. Its journey made a significant stop in Maryland's 6th Congressional District, before bobbing off through a world of legislatures, executives and, as we've just seen, judges. Mothers' Pensions allowed a degree of security to fatherless families, which were becoming more common as the American population shifted to the cities and factory work became ever more dangerous.

A model to replace Obamacare To the editor: Remember when U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi said, in reference to Obamacare: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it?” Well, it's been three years, and we are all finding out how devastating the effects of the bill are on hardworking families and small businesses across the country. That is why Obamacare's unpopularity is now reaching critical mass, even among traditionally loyal Democratic voters. Many in the Democratic base are in open revolt and are speaking out against this misguided piece of legislation.
