Turnout For Local Elections Low Compared With National Races

During even-numbered years, the public's attention is drawn to national and state elections where control of Congress and the Legislature are determined.

Ravalli County election administrator Regina Plettenberg says several local races are leading to a 35 to 45-percent ballot return rate this afternoon.

A technical oversight with York County's election machines is allowing a single voter to vote for a certain candidate a couple of times in certain races, according to a county spokesman.

For the 2015 municipal election, Easton had a total of 1,168 voters out of 4,983 who were registered, or 23%, Bromer said.

One young voter excitedly told us this was his first chance to vote in the local elections. But Secretary of State Jon Husted said in person turnout was far below what might have been expected. "It's been quite slow actually, and today's a pretty laid back Election Day comparatively", says Sheila Reiner, the Mesa County Clerk.

In Roanoke, about 13% of the city's registered voters had cast ballots as of 10 am.

Polls will be open until 7 p.m.in Wyandotte County.

"The decision to hold off was made (Monday) by the board of elections and the consideration was if you release this to the masses, it will then enable more people to cheat", Walters said. "But that's also politics", Vedder said of Tuesday's voting problem. While voters didn't want to talk to us about the issues, they were very vocal about their voting experience.

She added that by late afternoon 1,245 registered voters had cast their ballots - and nearly 100 people had shown up to vote the first hour the polls were open.
