Statewide Voter Turnout 13% in Primary
Wednesday, June 19, 2019

The statewide turnout for May’s primary election was reportedly just 13% which is even lower than that in Noble and Steuben Counties. The Indiana Secretary of State’s Office released its final turnout report from the May 7th municipal with voting from the 69 counties that held primary elections.

The other 23 counties, which included LaGrange and Whitley, did not have primary elections because there were no contested races or referendum questions on the ballot. In a release on Tuesday, Secretary of State Connie Lawson said that she hopes to see a higher turnout rate this fall, because when Hoosier voters are engaged it benefits the entire state.
