Low Voter Turnout Expectations for Today's Elections

Despite some key school board and park board races on the ballot, voter turnout is expected to be low for today’s local elections.


Based on early voting totals, Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello predicts only about 16 to 18 percent of eligible voters will cast ballots by the time the polls close tonight at 7pm.


But he says turnout could be higher in parts of Springfield, as well as Chatham, Riverton and Pleasant Plains… where there are high-profile contests for school boards, village boards and other offices.


970 WMAY will have complete election returns tonight after the polls close.
