There were 14,964 ballots cast in Tuesday’s primary election, a turnout of about 23 percent of the county’s roughly 64,300 registered voters. That's down by a couple thousand from the turnout in the governor’s primary in 2018.

Probate judge Andrea LeCroy, the county’s chief election official, said the election went very smoothly. It was the second election where “electronic poll books” were used rather than printed lists to check in voters and that system seemed to draw good reviews, especially from the younger generation of voters.

“We had a few things come up as we normally do on any election day,” said Don Milligan, chief of the Board of Registrars. His office is consulted when a question arises over a voter’s registration.

Of the 14,964 ballots cast, 14,365 (or 96 percent) were Republican. 570 Democratic ballots were cast or 4 percent. 26 non-partisan ballots were cast. You could just vote on the constitutional amendment and that was the only thing on the non-partisan ballot.
