Just as in the state as a whole, Hillary Clinton won in Taylor County in the Democratic primary for the race for the presidency.
Of the county’s 17,878 registered voters, 3,853 voted on Tuesday — a voter turnout of 21.55 percent. Statewide, turnout was 20.65 percent. Of the state’s 3,243,078 registered voters, 669,850 voted.
“It was a good election. We got all the votes counted by 7 p.m.,” said Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney. “It was very high turnout for a primary.”
