Voter turnout in Missouri is expected to be around 25 percent for next Tuesday’s party primaries, according to the Secretary of State’s office.
A turnout of 25 percent would be slightly higher than the 23 percent of Missouri voters who cast ballots in the 2010 primaries. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D) says voter turnout is notoriously hard to predict.
“In fact, our office doesn’t even do it," Carnahan said. "We ask the local election officials, the 116 of them around the state, to give us their predictions, based on what is on those local ballots.”
