25% Primary Voter Turnout Expected In Missouri
JEFFERSON CITY - Secretary of State Robin Carnahan released a report Friday which predicts 25.56% of registered voters will turn out for the Missouri primary election on August 7.
The prediction is based on local turnout estimates by election authorities in each county. If the estimate is correct, more than 1,000,000 ballots will be cast in the primary.
Two years ago, 23.85% of registered voters cast ballots in the primary election. One candidate says he thinks the voter turnout this year will be larger than expected.
"I'd like to see a big turnout. We might very well do that. 2012 is considered a banner year," said Fred Berry, who is running in the primary for Missouri State Representative.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 7.
