Voting officials in neighboring Floyd County are expecting a much smaller voter turn out for the upcoming Democratic Run-Off election. That’s because the only names on the Floyd County Ballot will be that of Democratic U.S. Senate Candidates Vernon Jordan and Jim Martin.
In Chattooga County the turn out is expected to be much higher due to the fact that two important county wide offices will be on the ballot. In Floyd County the turn out in the primary election was just a little over 11%, in Chattooga County the primary election turn out was almost 40% of registered voters. Election officials in Chattooga County aren’t saying how many they expect will turn out, but it will no-doubt be higher than Floyd or Walker county.
