Big voter turnouts reported in Toole County
Voter turnout totals in Toole County appear to be approaching record numbers. As of mid-afternoon, among the 6-precincts in Shelby…2224 voters had been at the polls. Registered voters by Monday afternoon was approximately 2,731 and quite a few of those registered voters are labeled as inactive, but even using that number the percentage of voters would be around 81-percent. I can’t recall the last time that many voters cast there ballot here in my 30 years of covering elections.
One example is the largest Shelby precincts where 15-hundred voters were registered and by 3 p.m. over 13-hundred had voted. That includes absentee ballots. Obviously a lot of interest in the election and we’ll have full coverage tonight on KSEN and K96 FM.
