Voting In One North Country Town: A Very Low Turnout

With most of the voting day over some North Country election officials are figuring it won’t take long to count votes tonight.

NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.

John Miller, the deputy moderator for the town of Bethlehem, says it has been a typical primary election for local candidates.

“The turnout so far has been very, very low.”

By about 4:30 roughly 250 of the 1600 or so registered voters in this Northern Grafton town had voted, Miller said.

He figured there were slightly more Republicans than Democrats voting.

And that it won’t be one of those election nights when vote counters are there until midnight.
