DeWitt County voter turnout for election 2016 was over 60-percent.
DeWitt County Clerk Dana Smith says Tuesday was busy but the turnout was exceptional. She indicates, despite other areas where Presidential races tend to bring out more voters, DeWitt County tends to be around the 60-percent threshold regularly.
Smith says their office closed down Tuesday and only handled election business. She indicates that went very well the first time around.
With only a couple dozen absentee ballots out, the ones that do get returned will not have any bearing on the outcomes of the contested referendums in DeWitt County.
Despite very few contested races locally, Smith says speculates it was likely the presidential race that brought more voters out.
