Higher than normal turnout anticipated for Tuesday election

MEDFORD, Ore. — As election day gets closer, more and more people are turning in their ballots to make their voices heard.

While special elections don’t usually see a very large voter turnout, so far, this special election has seen just over a 28 percent voter turnout. Turnout in prior special elections has ranged from 20 to 40 percent.

Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker says she’s anticipating around a 50 percent voter turnout for this election.

“Normally a one issue ballot wouldn’t garner a lot of participation, but of course this is a very passionate issue — on both sides.”

At this point, Walker says it’s probably too late to mail in your ballot. If you haven’t received your ballot yet, contact the Jackson County¬†Elections office.

Election day is Tuesday the 23rd.
