Turnout in Johnson County Low So Far
Kansas City, Missouri – It's a spring election in an off year, and, as expected, turnout has been relatively low so far in Johnson County, Kan.
16 cities have races for mayor and or city council. 8 school districts are electing board members. Voters will elect or return 3 trustees to the board of the Johnson County Community College.
Johnson County Election Commissioner Brian Newby says turnout is always higher in some places.
"You just have to look at the end of the day and almost always Gardner, Merriam, Roeland Park, and Fairway are right up there."
In the past, Newby says turnout in these areas has typically reached only about 25%. He expects election results to be finalized before 10 P.M.
