34 percent voted locally
By LAURA MITCHELL
An unofficial report published Wednesday shows at least 34 percent of registered voters in Imperial County voted in Tuesday's primary election.
The report by the county Elections Department shows 15,399 voters went to polls and another 800 voted by absentee ballot. There are 48,336 registered voters in the county.
The numbers reflect ballots counted so far, county Registrar of Voters Dolores Provencio said.
There are still about 1,394 unprocessed absentee ballots and another 247 provisional ballots, Provencio said. With absentee and provisional ballots still being counted, close races can't be called.
