Higher Than Expected Voter Turnout in Waynesboro

A major challenge for candidates during Tuesday's Democratic Primary was getting people to the polls.

Some rural counties had less than three percent of voters show up.

However, Waynesboro voting officials say they had a slightly higher turnout than expected, thanks to the House of Delegate 25th District race.

Even with that, the city had just five percent of its voters turnout, though they were expecting only three percent.

Within an hour of the poll's closing, Bob Sullivan, the chief of Waynesboro's Ward B precinct, said, "Today, we've had, I think, 183 votes. As sparse as that may sound, actually I feel like that's not that bad."

However, Sullivan said it is disappointing to not have larger numbers as a whole, and it may be worth looking at a caucus process instead in the future.
