Higher Than Average Turnout Expected In Jefferson County

Turnout in Tuesday's election in Jefferson County is expected to exceed that of recent years.The Secretary of State's office has predicted 48 percent statewide turnout. But with a high-profile mayor's race, Jefferson County Clerk's spokesperson Nore Ghibaudy says he thinks local turnout will be around 57%. He says absentee voting is also high."We've seen over 500 and some people a day who want to make sure they are able to cast their vote because they're going to be out of town on vacation on business trips, whatever, they'll be out the county the entire day," he says. "And those are good numbers. They're good, solid numbers. They're a little bit higher than they are in the past."53 percent of registered voters in Jefferson County cast ballots in the last midterm election in 2006. Polls will be open tomorrow Tuesday from 6 am to 6 pm. Voters must bring some form of identification, such as a driver's license or piece of mail.
