Voter turn out low in city election

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Voters only have until 7 p.m. to cast their ballot in area city, school, and other elections.

During early voting about 10,400 people cast a ballot.  The turnout was lower than the 2006 and 2008 May races, but Elections Administrator Dorothy Kennedy says this is not comparable to the May alcohol election. "I think possibly some of the reasons may be this has not been near as a contested election in all the different races. From the City Council to the Mayor to some of the school boards that are running, they're not as contested you don't have as much activity and people talking and campaigns sparing against each other," said Kennedy. 

The Elections Office hopes to have totals reach at least 4,000 people voting on Election Day. This is a precinct election, so you must vote in your precinct. If you don't know your precinct you can call (806)775-1868

If you're in line by 7 p.m. you'll still be able to vote, just make sure you have some form of identification.
