With the Spring Hill city election fast approaching on April 8, residents wanting to participate will have to register to vote by Tuesday, March 9.
Spring Hill's most recent election in 2019 saw an abysmal voter turnout rate of just 5.67 percent, with just 1,545 out of 27,271 registered voters participating. The progressively worsening voter turnout rate has seen city leaders propose everything from adding more polling places to moving the election date to coincide with national elections.
