Voter Turnout Expected To Be Down In Trigg County

With polls opening in just over 12 hours, local election officials aren't expecting a huge turnout for Tuesday's primary election. Trigg County Clerk Dorris McGill says she bases her prediction on the number of absentee ballots she receives.

Registered voters in Trigg County number almost 11,000, with nearly 60-percent of those being Democrats. Just under 4,000 are registered as Republicans, with 718 listed as "other." McGill says she hopes voter turnout will be comparable to the last primary election.

Caldwell County has nearly 10,000 registered voters. More than 7,000 of those are registered Democrats. In Lyon County, almost 71-percent of the 6,000 registered voters are Democrats.
