So, how low was the turnout in Racine County? Very low, indeed.
Predictions before the primary suggested about 15% of voters might vote in what was a lackluster election in most races -- an awful lot of unopposed candidates -- except for the Democrats' 1st District Congressional contest. That race started out with four candidates, and ended up with three.
Fifteen percent, it turns out, would have been great. Instead, less than half that percentage voted... even when we include the minor parties.
Racine County has 126,228 registered voters. There were 4,361 Democratic ballots cast, 3,728 Republican, 22 Wisconsin Green and 69 Libertarian -- for a total of 8,559.
In other words, 6.78% of those eligible to vote did so.
