A 30.3% turnout at the polls Tuesday made this year’s Primary Election notable for its particularly lackluster response. A typical turnout for a primary election in Teton County is around 60%. Elections Clerk Sherry Daigle says it may have been the low number of contested races that prompted people not to show up at the polls. She says most of the races were uncontested except for the city council race. She says Wyoming does not participate in the presidential primary as some other states do, and people didn’t realize what was at stake. Daigle says the low turnout really came as no surprise, though because the absentee voting leading up to Election Day was very low. Usually, she says there are people lining up down the hallway during the 40-day period that absentee voting is permitted. This time, she says there never was a line. Statewide, officials say voter turnout was one of the lowest seen in 30 years.
