Based by preliminary numbers gathered by our reporters, turnout appears to be very light during the morning/early afternoon on this State Primary/County General Election Day.
The District with the lowest recorded turnout so far has been District 17, the Public Library with 89 votes as of 12:45pm; while the district with the highest turnout as of 2:00pm was District 3a, East Montgomery School which had 246 votes at 1:55pm. Many of the poll workers attribute the lowered turnout to the success of early voting. Indeed Election commission statistics show that 10,109 people voted during the early voting period. Other voters may be waiting out the extreme heat.
Voting continues until 7:00pm. So if you have not yet voted, there is still plenty of time to head out to the polls.
During early voting 6257 people voted in the Republicans primary, and 3605 in the Democrat primary, with 247 only voting in the General Election.
We have compiled a gallery of election day photos, we hope you enjoy them.
