GREEN BAY - The Town of Morrison is taking home a trophy for participation in last week's election.
The non-partisan group Project VOTE – Voice Of The Electorate – awarded the trophy Tuesday morning.
Morrison had the highest voter turnout in Brown County: 71.29 percent of eligible voters cast ballots last Tuesday. Town leaders credit the number of contested races for the high interest in the election.
"Obviously it was efforts of a lot of people encouraging their neighbors to get out and vote," Town Chairman Todd Christensen said. "We'd like to see that in all elections."
The Town of Glenmore came in second place, with 67.86 percent turnout. The Town of Humboldt was in third, at 61.85 percent.
