The head of the county election board had predicted up to a 40 percent voter turnout in Washington County in Tuesday's primary elections, but with light activity at polls during the day, she lowered that prediction to 20 to 25 percent by Tuesday night. With only seven of the county's 54 precincts reporting as of about 9:15 p.m., Kaye E. Robucci, director of the Washington County Board of Elections, could only offer a rough estimate of voter turnout. Robucci said she based her 20 percent to 25 percent turnout prediction on the fact that voting was light at polls in the early part of the day. “Usually, we have people lined up at the door, and it just wasn't there,” Robucci said.
