Poll workers from left, Connie Putthoff, Carol Slawson and Debbie Allen, chat while they wait for Tonganoxie residents to come in and participate in Tuesday's special election. "We haven't been busy at all," Putthoff said. With only 25 ballots cast as of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Sacred Heart Parish Center precinct, Putthoff wasn't expecting much of a turnout. She was right; fewer than 200 voters cast ballots in the election.
