Voter turnout low in Jasper County

Posted: Updated:
JASPER CO., SC (WTOC) -

Voting continues in Jasper County where election officials say voting has gone smoothly with very few glitches.

But the board of elections said this has been a surprisingly low turnout so far. Officials are anticipating less than a 20 percent turnout.

 

"It's not a general election, that's part of [low turnout]," said Chairman of the Board of Elections of Jasper County Joseph Arzillo. "We're guessing 3,000 votes cast. We can't say for sure at this time. Absentee balloting has been low, but hopefully it will pick up before the end of the day."

 

Polls close at 7 p.m.
