Pa. voter turnout light in early election results

November 03, 2009

Voter turnout in Franklin County, Pa., during Tuesday's municipal election was about 20 percent in early election returns.

In Washington Township's first precinct, 267 voters cast choices for positions like jury commissioner, judge of the Pennsylvania Superior court and constable.

However, the most closely watched race in that municipality was the one seat open on the Waynesboro Area School Board.

Political newcomers Chris Lind, Bonnie Bachtell and Brenda Lucas were leading in the Waynesboro Area School Board race on Tuesday with only five precincts in the district not reporting.

Lind beat out incumbent Greg Ochoa by wide margins in the first four Washington Township precincts to report.

Voter turnout was about 22 percent in the Waynesboro area.
