Voter turnout was low for Illinois' June primary election
Voter turnout was low for the June primary election in Illinois.
Just under 22% of registered voters cast a ballot in the June 28th election.
State Board of Elections spokesperson Matt Dietrich says that's the second lowest turnout for a primary in Illinois in the last 40 years.
Dietrich says nearly 52% of those voting were democrats and 46% were republicans. Five Illinois counties offered libertarian ballots for certain offices. Dietrich says about 16% of voters opted for mail-in ballots.
