Primary Voter Turnout Down Across Region

Voter turnout across the Upper Cumberland this Super Tuesday generally slow.

In Putnam County, officials called the turnout slow, with people saying they were sure of who was going to win the Presidential Primaries. As of late afternoon, larger turnouts because of smaller early voting numbers had not materialized.

White County Elections officials called the turnout steady, close to what was expected. One official called it “solid.” In Overton County, officials said the turnout has been good, especially consider the weather. With uncontested races, officials said they expected the numbers to be down.

Clay County officials said turnout about the same as most primary years, with Hermitage Springs seeing more turnout than Celina’s precinct.

Turnout across the region did not match the Super Tuesday numbers from four years ago.
