    Just wondering how many total registered voters there are in Media. What was the turnout? Also, are the Media results just Media borough or does it include borough adjacent folks?

  2. Rick – there are approximately 3800 registered voters in Media, meaning Media on the whole had 77% voter turnout. That, in my opinion, is a great turnout; if we could only get that for every election!

    The numbers above are just for Media Borough and do not include other municipalities.
