With an expected Key West voter turnout around 53 percent, to date, just less than 10% of the city’s approximately 15,000 registered voters have cast ballots, 1,000 or so through absentee ballots and another few hundred have voted early.

Election Day is Tuesday, and polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Key West finest citizens will vote for incumbent Mayor McPherson’s position, along with the City Commission seats in districts 1, 3 and 6.

Also on the ballot are two referendums.

The first asks voters if the mayoral term should be extended from two years to four years, beginning with the 2011 Key West election cycle. Commissioners terms will be unchanged as they currently are elected for four years.

The second referendum asks for approval to sell a valuable piece of Old Town Key West real estate currently leased to the Pier House Resort.

Remember, if you don’t vote, we won’t listen to your complaints about the outcome.
