Low turnout in Iowa City primary

Slow at the Polls

A quiet day at the Iowa city polls as voters narrow the at large field from 7 candidates to 4. 894 voters as of 3:00, which is just a little ahead of 1999, the second-lowest Iowa City primary on record which ended up at just under 2500 voters. Small compared to the 5000 + turnouts city primaries pulled in the mid-90s and 2001. Since `01 we've had a sharp dropoff. But at least we're ahead of the record low from the "eliminate one student" primary two years ago.

No noticable spikes in student areas; looks like the every election voters today. Results later, analysis later yet.
