Franklin County Clerk Debby Door Expects the Voter Turnout to be Between 70% and 73%

Franklin County Clerk Debby Door expects the voter turnout tomorrow to be somewhere between 70% and 73%. Door also says that a closely contested race for several offices could cause the turnout to be even higher than the 2008 election with 73.8%. The actual act of voting will be no different than in past elections. Voters will still have the choice between a paper ballot or a touch screen. The implementation of I-Pads into the election process will not have an effect on voting, but will affect the signing in process that used to be done with a precinct roster. The large blue books took time to look up information with names listed in alphabetical order. The I-Pads find the information instantly and are intended to reduce wait times significantly.
