Latest update shows voter turnout at 71 percent

Staff writerNovember 23, 2010 

Dave Ammons at the Secretary of State's office sent out the latest - and likely last - update on voter turnout for the 2010 election. It'll be last because counties must certify results today which means they stop counting.

The total cast will be about 2.56 million out of 3.6 million registered. That's 71.18 percent, higher than any election since 1970 and well above turnout in the last several mid-term elections.

There are a handful of pending recounts across the state and the final results will be certified Dec. 2.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
