Turnout a record, though below predicted

Voter turnout Tuesday was 44.5 percent statewide - actually below Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner's prediction of 52 percent.

- 44 % in Clermont County,
- 43.8 % in Warren County.
- 42.5 % in Hamilton County;
- 36.3 % in Butler County;

Statewide turnout was the largest for a primary since percentages were kept since 1980, and will likely climb slightly once provisional and overseas ballots are counted. The previous high was 34.9 percent in March 2000.

Brunner had projected a turnout of 52 percent.

"What put a damper on that projection was literally the weather,'' she said, noting 10 counties reported severe flooding, two had bomb scares and at least two others suffered power outages.
