Although non-presidential election years tend to have a much smaller voter turnout, especially where municipal elections are concerned, Paulding County Election Supervisor Deidre Holden said today’s voting will likely not reach the 15 percent voter turnout the county strives for in “off years.”

“We have about an hour and a half remaining to vote and we have had 120 votes cast,” Holden said.

“It looks like we will not even come close to the 15 percent turnout,” she said, adding that the county had 72 residents to vote early.

Once the polls close at 7 p.m., Holden expects to have all the votes counted by around 8 p.m.

Election results can be viewed on the Web site.
