Voter Turnout Is ‘Below Average’

SALT LAKE CITY?Tuesday?s primary elections along the Wasatch Front attracted few voters to the polls.

At polling places in Salt Lake and Utah counties, election judges reported below-average attendance. Many who turned out were regular voters who enter the booth in practically every election.

?I am really sorry to say, it?s a poor turnout,” said Taylorsville election judge Marsha Artigues.

Taylorsville held primaries for mayor and two City Council seats.

?People just don?t care,? Artigues said. ?A lot of them feel like their vote doesn?t matter?which is silly, because it does.?
