Less than 5 percent of Howard County registered voters turned out to cast their ballot in this year’s constitutional amendment election, with polls closing at 7 p.m. Tuesday evening.
Howard County saw a total of 654 ballots cast — 272 during early voting, 28 mail-in ballots and 354 cast Tuesday — accounting for just 4 percent of the registered voters, according to official election reports.
Among the proposed amendments, Proposition 1 drew the most attention in the Crossroads area, which is heavily populated by military veterans.
