Only 9 Percent of Dubois County Voters Turned Out For Tuesday's Primary

From Local Sources 

DUBOIS COUNTY -- Election officials across the state are reporting low voter turnout in Tuesday's Primary.

In Dubois County, only 9 percent of registered voters cast a ballot. 

But it wasn’t just locals who didn’t come out.   "The news I'm hearing across the state when I speak to clerks is that it has not been that busy," said Indiana  Sec. of State Connie Lawson.   "These local elections, really they affect their lives on a daily basis more so than a state wide election, than federal elections," said Lawson.  

More local voters cast their ballot during early voting than on Primary Day.  In Dubois County, 648 people voted early.  Only 487 voters cast their ballot during Tuesday’s Primary.
