Turnout was higher than expected Tuesday as nearly 7,000 Taylor Countians took to the polls to cast their votes.
Awaiting a voting machine cartridge from Mannsville before results could be tallied, Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney told a small crowd gathered at the courthouse Tuesday evening that candidates and the alcohol issue encouraged more residents to participate in the election.
"We had an 8 percent turnout for the last presidential primary," Carney said. "We have 40 percent for this primary. The issues and the candidates brought out the voters."
