VOTER TURNOUT IN ST. CLAIR COUNTY MIRROR OF STATE


The final tally for voter turnout in St. Clair County for Tuesday's primary election was better than first thought, with about 18-point-2 percent showing up at the polls instead of the 14-percent first reported on.  County Clerk Jay DeBoyer says with an August primary, turnout often depends on what or who is on the ballot. The county has 122-thousand registered voters.  DeBoyer says even with 18-point-2 percent going to the polls it's not quite as good as previous August elections in 2010 and 2012.  State officials say about 18% of Michigan’s 7 million registered voters also turned out to vote on Tuesday. The election saw just a couple of local races of interest including a victory for County Commission Chair Jeff Bohm in the Republican primary and the approval of all of the local and county-wide millage askings.
