Light voter turnout expected for runoff

July 30, 2012

A light turnout is expected when Howard County voters go to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in the state primary runoff election.

Locally, only one polling place will be open Tuesday. Voters can cast ballots at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Howard College campus between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., officials said.
Despite a late surge, early voting in the races was extremely light, with fewer than 4 percent of registered voters casting ballots, County Election Administrator Saundra Bloom said.
