Only 26 percent of the county’s 48,136 registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s primary election, according to the Jefferson County Board of Elections.
But the number was 64 percent higher in the Indian Creek Local School District, as the district bond issue generated a voter turnout of 42.5 percent. That bond plus an additional levy in Mingo Junction pushed the voter turn out to 43.7 percent.
In Brooke County a little more than 4,100 votes were cast in the county, which equates to about 34%.
