Election Day is winding down and I think everyone would agree that it is HOT outside.
The day had a high of 92 degrees with a humidity of 49 percent – which in Weather Channel terms, feels like 97 degrees.
Kids were enjoying the snow cones, provided by candidate Hank Hainzinger, as evidenced by the many kids running around with purple lips.
Around 5:30 p.m. many voters were sitting under the shade of candidate’s camps, not too much mingling was happening as was earlier in the day. Many people had fans and many of the men had washcloths around their necks.
The camps that seemed to have the most visitors belonged to Linda LaZelle, Becky Johnson/Cecelia Tallchief, Teresa Hudgins/Matthew Shunkamolah/Nicki Revard Lorenzo and Rose Mary Shaw. Other camps had a few people who looked like they were enjoying good conversation.
Osage Nation Congressman Daniel Boone was sitting in the shade with candidate Roscoe Mays. He said he had been speaking with various candidates for three hours and still had yet to vote. Executive Advisor to Programs, Raymond Lasley, said he cast his vote for three candidates.
Conversations of who people voted for could be overheard at various camps. Not much time left before Osages learn who are the top six.
