Tippecanoe Co. turnout, so far, lower than past Primaries

Early voting before Tuesday's election has ended and turnout in Tippecanoe County is lower than the last presidential and midterm Primaries.

According to the county clerk’s office, 4,794 people cast a ballot over the past few weeks. That includes 3,851 taking a Republican ballot and 942 choosing Democrat.

That’s a little more than half of the record turnout during the 2008 Primary, which featured a still contested race between senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Compared to 2010, there were about 400 fewer voters. That year featured a large field of Republicans running to succeed retiring Congressman Steve Buyer in the 4th District and for the open U.S. Senate seat.

Primary voting Tuesday is from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
