Voters Return Incumbents to Office
Residents headed to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 2, Election Day 2004, to vote for their candidates of choice. As in 2000, the Presidential race was not decided when most residents went to bed Tuesday night. Rather, at approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Senator John Kerry made the phone call to President George W. Bush conceding victory. Election numbers on the Presidential race were still not final at press time although it is certain that Bush did win.
