Few voters turn out for primary election

-A A +A
By Jeff Moore

Carroll County voters showed very little interest in the May 17 primary election with only 471 casting ballots in the Democratic and Republican races.

That’s an overall turnout of 6.52 percent, county clerk Alice Marsh said. That’s off from the last primary with no local races in May 2007 when some 2,200 people voted with overall turnout of 12 percent.

Marsh said she believes the numbers voting were low because people were not aware of the primary election and the fact that incumbent Gov. Steve Beshear is unopposed and was not on the ballot.
