Planning to Vote in Next Week's Primary? You're Among the Minority
And while the fate of dozens of political wannabes hangs in the balance, it will be just a smattering of voters who determine their future. Yesterday, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (a candidate herself) announced the predicted voter turnout for Tuesday's primary.
According to Carnahan, a scant 24 percent of the electorate statewide is expected to make it to the polls Tuesday. But, hey, it's still better than the 18 percent of Missourians who -- according to the Associated Press -- voted in the 2008 primary.
