CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The words "slow," "trickle," and "very few" came to mind among election officials Tuesday describing turnout at the primary election that had only 21 percent of registered voters in Franklin County voting.
"It's been a long day," said Jim Davis, judge of elections for Waynesboro precinct 2-2, on Tuesday afternoon.
With just an hour left to go until the polls closed, Davis said only 90 people had voted at the precinct that day, averaging just one an hour for a few hours in the morning.
It picked up a little after 5 p.m., he said, when voters stopped in on their way home from work to cast their ballots.
