Below 30% Turnout Predicted Tues. in Metro-East

UNDATED (KMOX) – Tuesday is Election Day in Illinois.

Madison County Clerk Mark Von Nida doesn’t expect a large turnout, despite a highly-publicized countywide sales tax referendum vote, “This kind of election I always feel like someone who throws a party and nobody comes. The turnout is never very high. I’m hoping to see at least twenty-percent.” 

In neighboring St. Clair County, clerk Bob Delaney is predicting a 28% turnout.

Delaney says he expects the largest turnouts in Fairview Heights, Centreville, Cahokia, and parts of Belleville— where there are hotly-contested races.
