ALPENA - Almost a quarter of the registered voters in Alpena County, Montmorency County and Alcona County visited the polls on Tuesday to vote in a special election. Although there wasn't a large number of items on the ballot the AMA ESD request for a 10-year millage for three mills was enough to get the voters out. The millage request was defeated by the voters in the three counties 7,433 to 2,502 and according to Alpena County Clerk Bonnie Friedrichs said the turnout at the polls in the 29 precincts was large for a special election.
