Voter turnout expected to be similar to the last midterm election

Is there enough intrigue to make you vote in the upcoming election?

La Salle County Clerk JoAnn Caretto says so far over a thousand of you have already voted using a combination of early votes or voting in person with an absentee ballot. Her office has also mailed out over 2,800 absentee ballots including a couple to overseas voters.

As for projecting the voter turnout for the midterm election, Caretto guesses around 50%. The last election headlined by the governor’s race had a voter turnout of 47% in La Salle County.
