Voter Turnout
(2008-08-06)
(wgvu) - With no statewide contests to attract them to the
primary election polls, most Michigan voters stayed away.
The Michigan Department of State had predicted yesterday's
primary would draw fewer than one in five registered voters -- or
1.4 million out of 7.2 million.
Department spokeswoman Kelly Chesney says those projections
appeared to be holding firm yesterday. Final turnout figures aren't
available yet.
The 2006 primary had a turnout of 18 percent, while the turnout
in 2004 was 20 percent.
